Miss Liverpool City Region 2019 at Miss England

THE Grand final of Miss England was held Newcastle, home of the reigning Miss England 2018, Alisha Cowie, at the Newbridge Hotel, from 31 July to 1 August 2019. This year the contest had more than 50 contestants taking part in the final selection, including our Miss Liverpool City Region 2019, Finley Unsworth. Sadly Finley did not make it through, but that will not be the end of of the journey for Finley, as she still has lots of events to cover as she continues her role as an ambassador doe our Region, as Miss Liverpool City Region at lots of events still to come. To give you the idea of what Finley was competing against, this years winner is Bhasha Mukherjee, who is fluent in 5 languages and has 2 degrees to her name. She holds 1 in medical sciences and 1 in medicine and surgery, and just after being crowned she had no time to rest. Just hours after winning the 23 year old began her new job as a Junior Doctor, at Pilgrim Hospital, in Boston! We are told that Miss Mukherjee said she was:- "gob smacked" after hearing her name read out and realising the judges had chosen her to be the next Miss England. So to get to the finals, Finley has done amazingly well. We will run more about the results in next weeks edition, but we would like to say well done to Finley and we look forward to seeing her continue doing a fantastic job of inspiring others throughout her year as Miss Liverpool City Region. We would also like to say a massive well done to Bhasha Mukherjee and good luck as both a new Doctor and in her new role of Miss England.
