"Hi, my name is Chloe Tobin Bergin. I am 20 years old I am a full-time bioscience student in the Institute of Technology Carlow, I am also a qualified free-lance makeup artist and I have worked with some stage productions.
"I am currently expanding my education by taking part in an evening course in sign language. I enjoy spending my free time painting.
"I am joining my fellow entrants in the Laois rose 2019, I am very excited about this new experience I am undertaking and looking forward to meeting lots of new and interesting people.
"I am taking part this year to show people that they should take a chance and jump at oncoming opportunities and not let anything hold them back from following their dreams, we should be living our lives to the fullest and exploring as many adventures this world has to offer."
