The Northumbria University law student now hopes to organise an in-person pageant in Hartlepool in the next year after the event raised over £350 for mental health charity Mind.
Jessica, who currently holds the titles Miss Teesside Atlantic 2022 and Miss County Durham International 2022, said: “It gave me a look on the other side. I’m usually the contestant. Having a chance to run one, even though it was online, I got to see the other side of pageantry.
"It was really good.”
She continued: "It’s created a little bit of awareness for mental health and for pageantry in Hartlepool as well.
"It was a massive success.”
The winner will be announced during a Facebook Live at 7pm next Sunday, May 1.
Jessica, who is competing in the Miss Atlantic finals in Watford this Saturday, April 23, has also spoken about the importance of pageants in creating a community.
"It’s very important. I think in the North East, pageantry isn’t as popular, but I think it’s a really good thing in Hartlepool,” she said.
"A running theme is Hartlepool is bullying, antisocial behaviour, because kids haven’t got things to do.
"I think giving girls a community where they can feel confident and make friends, see all these different walks of life; I think it’s a really positive image to be setting in the local community.
"This is just another way of expressing your talents.”
