From Miss Butterworth:
I am from Cumbria, England an area renowned for stunning lakes and mountains. However, over the last five years, I have lived in glorious Devon, England. I am a huge fan of the stunning beaches and sea. One of my favourite ways of spending my free time is a stroll on the beach. I have a thirst for new experiences, both in my career and hobbies, resulting in my desire to travel and experience new cultures. I love to be active. I am passionate about sport and the life-long attributes and benefits that come with it. I believe with hard work and a positive outlook, anything is possible. I am excited to explore Abu Dhabi and what the emirate has to offer.
