She won the title Lady Transformation - for her switch from sniper to beauty queen, winning an expensive laptop as her prize.

Reflecting on her extraordinary life, she said she was one of 14 children her mother gave birth to - all of them given up to an orphanage. Her father later collected her but died when she was five, so she went back into state care.

Later she was given rudimentary training and thrust into the frontline as a sniper. She is planning to marry a man with whom she served on the frontline but meanwhile has found an investor for her cafe and is renovating the building.
