A TEENAGER from Hayes End, Mid­dle­sex has won a place in the Face of the Globe Beauty Pageant fi­nal in Dis­ney­land Paris next year.

Ameisha Clarke, 16, a stu­dent at Swake­leys School for Girls in Hilling­don, took part in the Lon­don pageant heat at El­stree Stu­dios on 29 Au­gust and placed in the top five out of 40 en­trants. The event has four age cat­e­gories: Mi­nis, Ju­niors, Teens and Adults. She has cho­sen to rep­re­sent Ja­maica in the fi­nal in April, as her fa­ther and three of her grand­par­ents are Ja­maican.

Ameisha said: “Mak­ing it to the grand fi­nals of Face of the Globe was a huge shock for me. I still con­sider my­self as a pageant new­bie so I didn’t ex­pect to make it.”

This is her first in­ter­na­tional pageant, al­though last year she was named Miss Ju­nior Teen Con­ge­nial­ity at the Miss Teen Great Bri­tain pageant com­pe­ti­tion held at the Globe Theatre, Black­pool.

Ameisha’s mother, Justina, said: “I am pleased that Ameisha has pro­gressed as it will al­low her to grow in con­fi­dence and build on her char­ity and fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties as she wants to show that beauty pageants are not just about looks but also about be­ing a rounded and car­ing in­di­vid­ual.”

The Face of the Globe pageant is hosted over one week be­tween the UK and Dis­ney­land Paris, and was founded by Lu­cie Hide, a former in­ter­na­tional beauty queen from England.
