In Her Own Words...
"Hello, my name is Kirsty Rose Heslewood, I am 24 years old and live in a small village in Hertfordshire. I am very close to my family; my mother, father, brother Jack who is an Aerospace Engineer, and my sister Karina. I am incredibly proud of them all.
I love learning and education; at school I really pushed myself hard for good GCSE and A-levels which paid off. I was awarded A-levels in my English, Maths, Biology and Design & Technology.
I am caring, trustworthy, hardworking and always give 100% in everything I do. I believe that happiness comes from achieving your goals, dreams and ambitions. I want to encourage people to go beyond their comfort zone and strive to be the best they can be."
