‘Perfect doesn’t exist’ – inspirational mum-of-two representing Kilkenny in Miss Bikini Ireland final
By COLIN BARTLEY
A MOTHER-of-two who raises awareness online about domestic abuse and positive body image – and whose motto is “perfect doesn’t exist” – is to represent Kilkenny in Miss Bikini Ireland.
Inspirational 24-year-old Andrea O’Regan, a make-up artist and fitness fanatic, is hoping to be crowned Miss Bikini Ireland. She has 50,000 followers online and when she finds time away from minding her kids or being in the gym, the busy mum likes to share her life experiences with other women.
“I suffer from anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. I share my story from a domestic violent relationship with other women to help them build up the courage to get the help they need,” said Andrea.
“I hope that the people of Kilkenny can help me to win this competition so I can show all women that you don’t have to be perfect – because perfect doesn’t exist.”
The winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the world finals of Swimsuit USA International for nine days with the chance of winning the prize worth $80,000. Previous winners have appeared at New York Fashion Week, Cannes Film Festival, London Fashion Week, and events across Ireland and around Europe and working with Monster Energy as part of Monster Energy Girl.
The Miss Bikini Ireland 2019 Grand Finals will take place this October 20 at the Red Cow Inn, Dublin.
