Junior Miss Bolton & Bury 2015 Portfolio

Bolton and Bury’s new young ambassador

Hello, my name is Giorgia Frost, I am 16 years old and was lucky enough to be crowned Junior Miss Bolton & Bury 2015/16 on 1st March.  To this day it’s still not quite sunk in yet!

Junior Miss Bolton & Bury 2015

With my title I am trying to get involved with events in both Bolton and Bury such as carnivals, light switch on and fairs etc. (anything that comes up during my reign) and strive to be a brilliant ambassador for both Bolton and Bury. I am also looking to get involved with charities that are close to my heart:  such as highlighting how acne affects a lot of young people and how you can deal with it (having been affected myself for several years); as well as asthma and even peer pressure on young adolescents (i.e. Drugs, smoking, drinking etc.) as I for one am teetotal! I want to show exactly what being a Junior Miss all is about; it’s about showing that beauty isn’t just on the outside, it is about what is on the inside that counts the most and being able to therefore empower young women to be the best possible version of themselves that they can be on both the inside and out.
