Miss Intercontinental Wales 2018 –
My name is Joey Staerkle, I was born in Switzerland and grew up in Wales. I am fortunate enough to have a diverse family from all over the world including all parts of the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Austria and Malawi which thanks to I have learnt about many different cultures. I enjoy travelling and emerging in different environments through food and meeting people where I can learn about their beliefs and values. I enjoy learning and I am currently in my penultimate year of my degree in entrepreneurship and business management in England. Within my academic life I am a representative for the management school for my peers and I represented my university at the YE regional final and was nominated for student of the year 2018. I often volunteer to talk to my juniors to encourage and inspire them to see the world with fresh eyes and grasp valuable opportunities. Alongside my studies and volunteering, I enjoy performing (Singing), modelling for various companies or for different campaigns and expressing my creative side. Additionally I take pleasure in cooking, spending time with my family and adrenaline sports such as zip lining, skiing and go-karting. I am thankful and fortunate enough to be representing my country of Wales for the second time internationally. I am ecstatic to be heading to the Philippines and to finally meet so many of you I have got to know, I have even started to learn some phrases in Filipino. Hanggang sa muli.
