Tasmin Poynton

Tasmin Poynton, one of our visitors, wanted to let us know about her place in the Miss Fresh Photographic competition.

Tasmin: "I’m 18 and live in Wiltshire, my mum is from Philippines (wooo) and my dad is English. To my knowledge, I am the only Filipino girl in the heat, and would love to become the first Filo-English Miss England! I am a black belt in kickboxing, I have been doing the Filipino martial art kali illustrisimo for about 3 years now, and I also have a keen interest in music: having a grade 2 in clarinet, grade 4 in violin, and grade 6 in piano. After I finish college, I would love to stay with my family for a year in the Philippines and do some sort of charity work, including help street families and children. By becoming Miss England I feel that I will have the ability to achieve this, as well as various other voluntary work all over."

Here’s the text from her promo poster:

  1. Hey Tasmin,

    just saying how great it was to see a half filipino girl entering in such competition. Hopefully you can succeed further in the future.

    Just saw you on soccer AM and thought I give a shout for representing England & the Phillipines.

    What belt are you for Kali? Cause I also do it but for a different system back in London and also do other martial arts including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
