Alanta Richards, a 17-year-old business student from Farnham, has won a place in the Miss England semi-finals.
Last year Alanta, despite being one of the youngest contestants, reached the finals of Miss England.
“My ambition in life is to become a fashion model and influencer,” said Alanta.
Determined to make this dream a reality, she decided to compete again in this year’s competition and won a place in the semi-finals.
“I want to thank my mum who has supported me throughout the Miss England heats and final last year,” she said.
Alanta’s hobbies include horse riding and trick/western style riding.
The Miss England 2023 semi-final will be held in Blackpool on October 16.
