In a 66-year story of a Miss Universe pageant, a black lady has never represented Great Britain — until now, that is.

Meet Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers, 25, a 2016 connoisseur of a University of Birmingham Law School. Kentish-Rogers was innate in Anguilla, a British abroad territory, and perceived her climax on Saturday, Jul 14. She will go on to paint Great Britain in a Miss Universe manifestation in a Philippines after this year. From Twitter:

Here’s what Kentish-Rogers pronounced about her win in an talk with BuzzFeed:

I consider it’s unequivocally humbling and we consider it’s also a payoff for me to turn a initial black lady who is crowned Miss Universe Great Britain. we trust that this is a instruction that a manifestation has been going in for a final integrate of years given Britain is a different nation, we are a multicultural multitude and it is time that that farrago is seen on a theatre where other immature black girls and girls of all ethnicities can see that this is something for everybody not only some of us.

Perhaps even some-more sparkling than her Miss Universe GB win is a fact that she recently schooled that she upheld a UK bar exam, and will be rigourously called to a bar in a rite after this month. “I wish to lapse to law, it’s my baby, it’s what I’m many ardent about,” she pronounced in an talk with BBC News. “What I’ll do is I’ll put it on a backburner for now while we follow my dreams for Miss Universe.”

Congratulations to Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers on all of her accomplishments and on creation history! We can’t wait to see her contest in a Miss Universe pageant.
