Nikki, who represented her county at a prestigious beauty pageant in April 2012, won the title of Miss Black Country despite coming out of hospital on the day. This secured her a place at the Miss England 2012 Grand Finals leading to Miss World. Unfortunately due to a decline in health Nikki was unable to take part and pulled out just days before the finals. Despite this, her determination and drive to succeed lead her to quickly recover and she was caste as an extra for Fast and Furious 6 where she filmed alongside Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez.

Following this she set out to raise awareness for a number of charities, one including Womens Aid to help stamp out stigma associated with Domestic Abuse and to help maintain funding for refuge services. She then became an ambassador for The Haven in her hometown to help raise awareness for the taboo subject.  Grace Lee, Public Relations Officer for The Haven Wolverhampton said, We are delighted to have Nikki working with us. Nikki is a truly inspiring person and we cannot thank her enough for wanting to help raise awareness of the needs of women and children affected by domestic violence in Wolverhampton

Determined to re-gain her place at the Miss England 2013 Grand Finals, Nikki entered the Miss England regional heat Miss Asian Model in January. She impressed the judges with her beauty, intelligence and eloquence, in the interview round, her poise and grace in the evening wear round and her fantastic physique in the little black dress round.  She walked away on the night winning not only the title of Miss Asian Model 2013 but was also crowned Miss Charity, becoming a triple titleholder.  Interviewed on the night Nikki said, I interpreted this title as Asian ‘Role’ Model from the moment I entered. And that’s exactly what I hope one day to become. To help others by making a profound positive impact and also break the mold by showing you cannot only be beautiful but also intelligent and strong. I’m here to make a statement about female empowerment and strength”.
And strength is exactly what she has set out to show.  Sponsored by International sports equipment and MMA specialists Bad Boy MMA, Nikki is a training Martial Arts Athlete who wants to incorporate this into her charity work, so she can teach self-defense to others. She will now go on to join 59 others finalists at the Miss England Finals held in Torquay on June 15th and 16th, to compete for the national crown and a place in Miss World.  Having achieved so much in a short space of time and with such drive and ambition to achieve, we can be assured Nikki will be tough competition to beat!
