Student Noky to represent England in Vietnam gala.

Noky Simbani, a chemical engineering student from Birmingham, is preparing to jet off to Vietnam in two weeks time to represent England at an international beauty pageant.

20-year-old Noky fought off tough competition from women all over the country to win the title of Miss Grand England back in June at the UK Power Pageant and will now take part in the prestigious Miss Grand International final.

Noky and her two team mates from Scotland and Wales, will spend three weeks touring Vietnam, taking part in lots of exciting activities, interviews and photoshoots before competing on stage against beauties from all over the world for the Miss Grand International crown.

As well as focusing on her studies at the University of Birmingham, Noky has also been busy preparing for the competition by making lots of public appearances all over the UK to promote the Miss Grand International organisation.

The final of Miss Grand International will take place on the 25th of October and will attract a live audience from all over the world.
