UK Ambassadors Blog
This post/appearance is VERY IMPORTANT to us all. PLEASE take a minute to read & PLEASE SHARE this As your Ambassador Grace Smithen I wanted to bring this to everyone's attention.
This week is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week and as your Miss Elegance Of The World UK Ambassador and Finalist I Grace Smithen I'm joining the #smearforsmear campaign in support of raising awareness about Cervical Cancer Prevention.
Let’s face it, the last year has been a challenge with lots of things in life becoming more difficult.
But one thing hasn't changed: The importance of cervical screening (smear tests). Smear tests are the best protection against Cervical Cancer Awareness.
This year we’re calling for faster action on at-home cervical screening (HPV self-sampling). Cervical screening isn’t easy for everyone and self-sampling could help more women and people with a cervix can access the test in a way that suits their needs.
This is very important and you can find support, information and tips on www.jostrust.org.uk

Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This years theme is “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!” #orangetheworld
As countries implemented lockdown measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus, violence against women, especially domestic violence, intensified – in some countries, calls to helplines have increased five-fold. Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today remains largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma and shame surrounding it.
This is a very important topic that needs to be discussed and talked about.
Did you know that 1 in 3 women and girls experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, most frequently by an intimate partner.
This day is to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems.
And remember that today is the day to #orangetheworld
No Violence, No Endless Pain!
Shelter helps over a million people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness, and they campaign to prevent it in the first place. They're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. 5 million people contacted Shelter last year looking for advice and every 13 minutes another family in England has become homeless.

Grace smithen your UK Ambassador I set off to become a potential blood stem cell donor.
Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Only 30% of people with blood cancer find a matching donor within their family. Therefore it is really important for other to register to be a donor for those in need.
DKMS UK is an international non-profit organization in the fight against blood cancer and blood disorders, DKMS focuses on raising awareness around these conditions, their treatment, and the registration of potential stem cell donors to save patients' lives.
To register to be a potential donor please visit: www.dkms.org.uk
In January I wrote my yearly PostPal birthday cards!
PostPals is a charity who’s sole purpose is to make seriously ill children smile. On the PostPal website they feature children, their story and a postal address to send presents and cards too.
Most of these children live in hospital and therefore don’t have the opportunities to go to school, make friends outside or have a big birthday party. Therefore it means so much to them to receive cards on their birthday!
In January I prepared my birthday cards for the first half of the year and in July (so now!) I send the second lot of cards!
It’s an amazing charity that I have been involved with for over 10 years.
For anyone who wants to bring a smile to a child’s face please go to: www.postpals.co.uk

As your UK Miss Elegance Of The World Ambassador I been busy knitting mask extenders! These cute little things go at the back of your head and you hook your mask onto them! Essential workers can wear masks for hours and cause pain behind the ears. Also people wearing hearing aids can have issues as it can pull their hearing aids out.
I have been making lots of these in many colours and posting them to friends who are essential workers.
I have also contacted local care homes and offered to donate as many as they wish to their residents.
In the video I talk a little about Mental Health and how important it is to us all and how I took the cause below, please click on the link below, and it's all done online, and I found the training really good and I learnt a lot from it! So check it out now below!
I also believe as humans the greatest quality we can choose to have is kindness. So embrace it and be kind to each other.

Hi Everyone hope you all are #safe & well !
Are you thinking about activities to keep yourself busy during this time ?
“This weekend I decided to challenge myself to learn a new skill and all for an amazing cause!
I ordered some knitting needles and wool, went on YouTube and I taught myself how to knit! I have never attempted it before so wasn’t sure how it was going to go but I actually picked it up ok! I had heard about ‘The Innocent Big Knit’ which you might have seen before! It’s where thousands of people knit and donate the little hats that go on the innocent smoothie bottles. Once sold part of the sale price is donated to Age UK!
The Innocent Big Knit started in 2003 and has raised 2.5 million so far for Age UK all through the donation of people making the little hats!
So I decided to learn a new skill and all for a good cause whilst we’re in lockdown. Here are her first two little hats ready for donation and I have already started on the next one!”
Today I completed the 5k challenge! I was nominated by 2 friends to take on the challenge. You walk or run 5k, donate £5 to a charity of your choice and then nominate 5 people to do the same.
This challenge is to motivate you to get moving and to help with your mental health.
I decided to walk it on the beach with my puppy Meeko 💖🐾! So I took it at my own pace and enjoyed the walk! (Of course Meeko bless had to be carried for some of it!). She even made it to the lighthouse.
I then donated £5 to my chosen charity which is Cancer Research UK. This charity is very close to my heart and I have been raising money for them for just over a year.
Then I nominated 5 friends. One of my nominations was all the girls in Miss Elegance Of The World! So come on girls let’s all get moving and complete the 5k challenge!
