A young woman, aged 18, hailing from Durham and currently a student as well as a waitress, has successfully advanced to the grand finale of the FAB UK TOP MODEL competition.
This nationwide event is poised to take place in London and is aimed at showcasing emerging modelling talents from all corners of the United Kingdom.
Imogen Storey (18) has also recently qualified as a Miss England semi-finalist by competing in a virtual heat on the Miss England App.
Busy Imogen from Sherburn Hill has been invited to take part in the FAB UK TOP MODEL contest on Friday 22nd September at the Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences in London & the Miss England semi-final at Viva Blackpool on October 16th!
“Coffee at Chesneys” in Durham are backing Imogen all the way by supporting her place in the two competitions by being her official sponsor. A spokesperson for the coffee shop said “Imogen has been with us for just over three years after a firm recommendation from her grandad, who was a favoured regular. She’s a fabulous member of the team and we couldn’t be happier to support her exciting endeavours. She’s nicknamed Naomi due to her long legs, so we’re not shocked she’s entered a modelling competition and we wish her the best of luck. She also makes a canny cuppa!”
Currently, Imogen is studying English language, history and English literature. An interesting fact about Imogen is that she is a keen advocate for women’s rights and loves going to feminist talks by empowered women, such as Miss England Jessica Gagen who has recently graduated with a Masters in Aerospace Engineering! Jessica is representing England at the next Miss World final, due to be held in India Jessica is using her Miss England platform to encourage more women into STEM careers by visiting schools and colleges across the country.
“ If I were to win Miss England, I would use the Beauty with a Purpose platform to bring attention to and help fundraise for period poverty within the UK. This is because I believe it is crucial to destigmatise the shame which is attached to periods and help aid the lack of financial funding surrounding them”
Imogen recently reached out and is working with Freedom4Girls, an amazing charity, who sew and distribute reusable sanitary products across the UK and Kenya. With this collaboration Imogen is currently organising a local event. She will be asking her local community to come together and help her to sew some of the products which will then be donated to Freedom4Girls.
