It's been almost two weeks since Teesside University student, Megan Daniels, 19, was crowned Miss Tees Valley 2018 at the sold out live grand final!! Megan has already appeared on the front page and inside of the Gazette and has had a live interview on Tyne & Wear TV! As she prepares to now represent the Tees Valley at the Supermodel England national final in November, we caught up with Megan to get her take on her experience in the competition and to find out a little bit more about the areas top beauty queen!


Alexandra: How did it feel to hear your name called as the winner of Miss Tees Valley?

Megan: When I heard my name called I was amazed, as all I was thinking in my head was that I was happy to have made it to the top 8, so I was very overwhelmed & excited all in one!


Megan placed in the top 3 of all 4 of the special awards in the competition: Miss Photogenic, Miss Sportswoman, Miss Congenialty and Miss Catwalk for a Cause.


Alexandra: In the run up to the live final you raised a fantastic £2,900+ for Zoes Place and the MFC Foundation, what did you do to raise such an incredible amount?

Megan: I did number of events including a band night, a coffee morning, a 10k sponsored run, it’s a knock out and a car boot sale, as well as collecting money at my work. I'm really pleased with how much I was able to raise.


Alexandra: What did you enjoy most about taking part in the competition?

I enjoyed a lot of things but mostly meeting the girls, raising money for charity & the glamour of the occasion, the final was definitely an experience I will never forget.


Alexandra: If you could give one piece of advice to any girls thinking about entering Miss Tees Valley what would it be?

Megan: The advice I would give is to go for it, you may not get the amazing opportunity to do it again, believe in yourself.


In her spare time Megan likes to exercise and socialise with friends, as well as learning new songs on her guitar. Her favourite colour is red, her two favourite animals are dogs and dolphins and she would love to travel to the Maldives.


Alexandra: How would your friends and family describe you?

Megan: My friends & family would describe me as caring/loveable, funny, adventurous and hardworking.
