Gabriella Jukes

9th October 2019

We are delighted to welcome Miss Wales 2019 Gabriella Jukes to our growing hospitality and events team.

Fresh from winning the much coveted Miss Wales 2019 crown, Gabriella will bring her own unique experience, drive and tenacity to The Events Room.

With a huge passion for sport including karate, athletics and netball, Gabriella clearly enjoys working in a sporting environment. Miss Jukes is an ambassador for Thrive Women’s Aid, helping to raise awareness of the work the organisation does to help women who have been affected by domestic violence. Gabriella’s values certainly align with ours.

Another subject close to her heart is empowering young women to achieve their full potential. To quote her ‘Nothing is impossible if you work hard to achieve your dream’.

We asked Gabriella a few quick-fire questions:

Favourite personality?
I wouldn’t say I have one favourite in particular, but I’m a very proud of my Port Talbot roots, and so I’m very supportive of Welsh celebrities including Michael Sheen who I recently met. I also enjoy meeting many of the guest speakers at The Events Room. In particular, meeting the great Max Boyce MBE at the award winning Morgans, Swansea.

Favourite sports star?
Usain Bolt or Jessica Ennis

Who would you most like to meet?
One of my favourite previous Miss World winners is Rolene Strauss from South Africa. She is someone I really look up to and I hope I’ll get the chance to meet her when I go to Miss World in November (2019).

Greatest achievement?
Winning Miss Wales and graduating with a degree in BSc Sport and Exercise Science.

We look forward to Gabriella enjoying her new role at The Events Room. Welcome aboard!
