This event is testing what Europe preaches about equality and our basic humanity and at the moment we are failing. We have a duty, an obligation, whereby we have to do something or else we'll look back on this in the years to come as a defining moment for our loss of compassion and humanity. It was incredible to be part of this event and see so many people from all walks of life coming together in solidarity to express their dismay at the response to the refugee crisis and demand more be done. Our voices will be heard and I'm so glad that myself and Ravén Angelina-Rosalette Dixon-Biggs, Miss Black Country Runner Up, were able to share our views on this topic with the Birmingham Mail.
All the best,
