Dearbhla Walsh

This experienced former titleholder, Miss Northern Ireland, is so passionate about pageantry because she loves being a role model to younger girls – “showing them to be confident in every facet of their lives and that they can reach the stars.” She loves the Miss Universe sisterhood bonds that are built with the other women and loves how the contestants support each other. She believes that women should build each other up, not knock each other down. Dearbhla’s career ambition is to be a TV Presenter for a construction related TV show like ‘Room to Improve’ or ‘Grand designs.’ By using her honours Bachelor of Science degree in Quantity Surveying, she would love to be the Quantity Surveyor on one of these programmes; giving advice for the builds. She loves that the most unusual thing about her is the fact that the surface façade doesn’t match the interior. She has blonde hair and blue eyes, yet she can still put on a hard hat and boots and compete in a male dominated industry. Self-described – “like legally blonde, but more like construction blonde!”
