"I've already had the joy of speaking to so many lovely girls that are so kind and accepting.

"Pageantry is really not how it is often portrayed, all the girls are the sweetest, most supportive people."

Ella does a lot of fundraising for charities such as Ormiston Families, Action Aid and Women's Aid, by doing mud runs, sponsored walks and bake sales.

She has hopes of being an actress and singer in the future, but also hopes to continue pageanting until she can compete for the Miss Universe title.
