The 20-year-old from Ash­ford took time off her de­gree course in in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions to win the Miss Ash­ford Galaxy 2009 ti­tle.

She said: “I’m a healthy size 12 and could not be fur­ther from the stereo­typ­i­cal ‘size zero’ no brains girl.

“I love my curves and want to pro­mote con­fi­dence in your own body to women of all ages.”

As a teenager she was in­volved in the Kent Youth County Coun­cil, the UK Youth Par­lia­ment and the Con­nex­ions Kent and Med­way Youth Board.

She said: “At 14 I had the op­por­tu­nity to work at 10 Down­ing Street. I ap­peared on tele­vi­sion with Tony Blair as one of only 25 young peo­ple who were of­fered the chance of a life­time to have their say with the PM .”

Catriona will rep­re­sent Ash­ford at the UK fi­nals of the Miss UK Galaxy 2009 com­pe­ti­tion on March 29 in Manch­ester.
