At the right place at the right time, Georgia Graham a.k.a. Little Georgia G, this month’s Sexiest Woman for September 2013, was discovered while working for No Fear at the Urban Music Awards in London and the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA).
A petite, cheeky, tattooed Geordie girl who loves a laugh and lives life to the fullest, Georgia is the official ring girl for BAMMA, the largest MMA promotion in Europe. As well as promoting mixed martial arts, this qualified fitness instructor trains in kickboxing and has recently obtained her green belt. Previously working as a grid girl for the British Touring Car Championship, Georgia now presents for Atom Cup Racing.
Doing a lot of work presenting and being a brand ambassador, Georgia says she loves working with great people and getting the best from a photoshoot. However, like any job, there are a few downsides. Georgia says she hates doing anything in the freezing cold and it can be tough being judged by your looks.
“I don’t totter about in heels all day or worry if I break a nail – I’m usually in leggings, t-shirts, with a ponytail, no make-up and if I’m working for my dad…up to the eyes in mud!”
Working in the modeling industry, Georgia has learnt not to take everything at face value or believe everything she hears. And mostly importantly, she says it certainly isn’t an easy way to make a living.
“It’s not all glitz and glamour…”
Finding it slightly surreal seeing herself on TV or having people recognise her, Georgia gives thanks to her family and fans for their constant support.
“Without the support of people such as those who took their time to vote for me on the StarCentral website, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
Georgia hopes to continue pursuing a career path in presenting and film work and would ultimately like to be well known for presenting sport, especially motor racing or mixed martial arts.
Outside of her career Georgia is an avid supporter of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, recently applying to be a volunteer, and has also planned for some time out away.
“This year I’m also travelling to California in November for a month, a spontaneous trip alone! I hope to see old friends, make new friends, explore the area and network!”
