A four year old Ely girl, who was the youngest contestant in a national pageant contest, has been crowned as mini miss publicity.
Hephzibah Akinwale was awarded as winner out of the four to nine year olds taking part.
Her mum Chika said: “Hephzibah felt really thrilled about her award.
“Her current dream is to own her TV show that will inspire and empower kids to dream big and make people happy.”
Hephzibah makes short videos for children including how to make easy cakes and her latest - counting to 100.
She was chosen from more than 1,000 children to take her place in the world finals of Mini Miss British Empire 2017 last month.
Her mum Chika added: “Hephzibah is a bubbly, confident, creative, hardworking, friendly, and ambitious girl,” with hobbies of drawing, singing, ballet, dancing, acting, speaking, and maths.
She won best in beauty pageants at the International Achievers Awards in London.
The pageant was founded in 2011 by former Miss Great Britain and Hollywood actress Liz Fuller who wanted to pass on the opportunities she had enjoyed.
