Ambassador Angel: Rosanna Davison
Rosanna Davison, Ex Miss world and daughter of Chris de Burgh, has been seen fronting many campaigns for charity PETA as one of their most popular cover girls, due to her high profile Veganism, celebrity status and extreme love for animals. Rosanna has worked closely with the Irish Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA) as an ambassador for the past ten years. In that time she has been involved in numerous campaigns to raise money and public and media awareness for abused and neglected animals across Ireland. Each year she runs the 10k Flora Women’s Mini Marathon for the charity and in 2009, she raised €75,000 for the charity in a New Year’s Eve special TV show on RTE1 called Winning Streak. When Rosanna married in 2014, she requested that her guests donate money to the online ISPCA fund and managed to raise €3,320 for the charity, which went straight to buying brand new grooming equipment for the centre, to make sure the rescue dogs stay clean and healthy. The centre was officially opened by Rosanna in January 2015.
Rosanna is extremely experienced in nutrition and, in February 2014, she graduated from the College of Naturopathic Medicine as a qualified Nutritional Therapist. Rosanna is a strict vegan, animal rights activist and fitness enthusiast, who currently works with clients at her home clinic, consulting them on their health and dietary needs and is currently in production of her first book on Vegan cooking and exercise. Her vegan fitness and cookbooks: ‘Eat yourself beautiful’ and Eat yourself fit’ flew to the top of the book charts and have been extremely successful.
A Little Background:
When Rosanna won Miss world in 2003, she was crowned the 52nd Miss World and the first ever in Ireland’s history. Rosanna’s role as Miss World involved fundraising for a number of international children’s charities such as Variety International, and regularly visiting neo-natal wards and pediatric units in hospitals, plus orphanages and daycare facilities during the international tour which took her to the United States, Canada, China, Africa, Sri Lanka and across Europe. In addition, she greatly enjoyed the opportunity to model worldwide and to appear regularly on television and radio shows.
On top of her studies, Rosanna has been working as a full-time model, writer and media personality. She has been featured in numerous fashion shows and photo shoots for such publications as Hello, OK!, Vanity Fair Germany and UK, Irish and UK Tatler Magazine, Loaded Magazine, RSVP, U Magazine, Stellar Magazine, South-East Wedding Magazine and Prudence Magazine.
