New mum Aisha Allon will tonight find out if she’s in the running to be Miss Great Britain.

Just three months ago, Aisha Allon gave birth, but the 18–year–old will be on stage battling against 60 other beauties at Wynyard Hall for the title of Miss Sunderland.

Aisha, who has modelled for Barbour and New Look, reached the final of Miss Teen British Isles last August, but had to give up her dream after failing to find the required sponsorship to take her to the event in Liverpool.

Shortly afterwards, she discovered she was pregnant with her son Reuben, and that made her even more determined to fulfil her dreams of a career in fashion.

Aisha, who is studying health and social care and business, said: “To win would be a dream come true.

“I want to prove that I am able to do this for myself and my son, that I can be a young mum and still follow my dreams.

“Some people criticise young mums, but I’m doing this for our future.”
