She said: "My mum and sister originally encouraged me to enter.
"As a civil engineering student it's not the most usual thing to do, but it's a great opportunity.
"I have raised money for various charities, including Starlight Children's Foundation which is close to my heart.
"It's important to give something back."
If successful today, Ayo, originally from Eastbourne, will spend a week at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando competing for the international title.
She said: "It's a once in a lifetime chance.
"I'm so glad I chose to study in Plymouth, it's such a lovely place and I'm really passionate about the university.
