22-year-old Welsh beauty from Port Talbot, Gabriella Francésca Jukes, was crowned Miss Wales 2019 on Saturday, April 13 at The Riverfront, in New Port. The runners-up were Sioned Murphy from Cardiff and Darcey Corria from Barry.
It was her third time competing in the pageant. The sport and exercise science graduate emerged the winner against 33 other beauties. She is a keen sportswoman and particularly enjoys karate, athletics, and netball. But the subject closest to her heart is empowering young women to achieve their full potential.
Gabriella has spent the last year focusing on her modelling career after making it to the final 14 on Britain’s Next Top Model in 2017. Now, she will prepare to represent Wales at the Miss World 2019 pageant in London later this year.
