“A British beauty queen has been stripped of her title after pageant organisers discovered she lied about her age and place of residence on the application form for the contest.

 
Hopefuls must be between the ages of 15 and 24 to participate in the Miss Cornwall pageant and 27-year-old English teacher Anness claimed to be 22 on all the entry forms she submitted between 2006 and 2010, British papers reported.
 
Anness apologised for the incident, explaining that she had lied about her age to follow her dream.”

This wasn’t a “little white lie”, it was a whopper. By claiming that she was 22, Anness stole the tiara from the first runner-up.
 
To follow her dream, Anness turned the first runner-up’s dream into a nightmare.
 
We can’t fulfill all of our dreams, there comes a time when we need to let go of our dreams, and imagine new ones.
 
Runner-up Samantha Jane Orpe will take her title and compete in the Miss England final.
 
Shame on Anness, and congratulations to Orpe.
