A Bromley property negotiator has landed a top modelling job after competing in a beauty pageant final on Saturday.

Neesha Robinson, 23, who lives in Chelsham, Surrey, but works in the town centre, made it through to the final eight contestants of Miss Caribbean UK, and while she didn’t win, she did walk away with her first modelling contract with Curly Hair Magazine.

“It was a great event and it went really well,” she said.

“I didn’t manage to finish in the top three but it was still a success because I’ve since had a lot of people reaching out wanting to book me for modelling and presenting jobs.

“So the future is looking bright, the only way is up and I’m so grateful for the experience with Miss Caribbean UK.”

No stranger to the limelight, Miss Robinson previously held the title of Miss Afro Beauty, while also reaching the final of Miss England in 2014, beating off 20,000 people in the process.

Despite working 72 hours a week on top of her cheerleading commitments at Crystal Palace, she is confident she can still find the time to forge a successful new career.

“I think you can always do more,” she said.

“There’s the weekends and there’s after work, and while there may be some stuff I have to turn down I want to try and work around it so I can make the most of the opportunity and throw myself into everything I can.”

Miss Caribbean UK uses pageantry to promote, unify, inspire, educate, entertain and celebrate the historical and cultural impact of the Caribbean within Britain.

The final took place at the Shaw Theatre on Euston Road.
