Merry Christmas from Miss Teen Galaxy England, Bethany Cammack!

Miss Teen Galaxy England, Bethany Cammack, would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and share some of her favourite Galaxy moments with you!

‘Wow is all I can say from the moment I entered Galaxy, it has been amazing. I was unsure whether to enter Galaxy just because of a few personal issues I had going on but then I thought – it’s what I want to do so I am going to enter and I can honestly say it was the best thing I have ever done. On receiving my Miss Teen Galaxy Merseyside sash, I wasted no time and put my title straight to work, I got involved in my community and was invited to all kinds of functions from summer fares to charity nights and everyone wanted to know about my title and I would proudly tell them. Then the fun of the preparation leading up to the final choosing all my outfits and trying on lots of dresses just to find the perfect one! Then the final was here, I loved every minute of it from meeting all the other girls to the interview and then just giving it my all on that stage! I came off stage feeling really proud of myself and I knew I couldn’t have done anymore and it was now in the judges hands.

 I won …I was now Miss Teen Galaxy England, I was shaking, I was crying and I could not believe it but it was true! I had worked my hardest and it had paid off ! I was now part of the Galaxy family.

 Not only had I won this amazing title, I would now be going to America to compete internationally, but first we had our trip to Plas Colwyn. This was amazing with my pageant sisters we watched movies like Miss Congeniality of course and we ate pizza. I probably ate my own body weight in pizza but it is my favourite food! This was a chance for us all to get to know each other properly. I did know a few of my sister queens but on this holiday we began to build our friendships that would last a life time.

 Preparation time once again but this time for America! With all of my outfits ready and feeling prepared,  I still could not believe that I would be going to America to represent England! But it was here, we all met at the airport all wearing our crowns and sashes. Everyone was looking and taking pictures and we were all so exited about the journey we were about to have.

 AMAZING is the only way to explain it! We all had the best time ever and we enjoyed every minute of it. We had photo shoots and the white party with lots of chocolate, and we had a pyjama party with PIZZA!! We had fun and lots and lots of laughing especially at me when I got stuck down the side of the bed and my sister queens thought it was hilarious to throw grapes at me! I not only had my sister queens but I got to know quite a lot of the other girls too, especially Brooke from Australia! We thought we were the best dancers on the stage but we clearly weren’t… Of course I would have loved to come away from America with the Miss Teen Galaxy International title, who wouldn’t? But I was very grateful for the opportunity just to have been able to be there, it really was a dream come true! <3

 In my year as Miss Teen Galaxy England, looking back, I have done so much! I was invited to judge pageants, I did a lot charity things including a swimathon! I collected food for our local food bank, I did the moonlight walk, I organised my own charity photo shoot day, I received the Diana award because of all the charity work I do for Bullies Out of which I am a young ambassador! I did an abseil, I did the zip wire challenge and I even organised my own charity night raising nearly £500! And because of my title, I can now dance! I was asked to take part in a amazing charity event called strictly St Rocco’s! This was very similar to strictly come dancing and I had to have dance lessons to learn how to dance the Argentina Tango in front of nearly 400 people! From this event over £26,000 was raised and I am proud to be a part of that thanks to Galaxy! Having my title has helped me reach other people and make a difference to peoples lives. I have tried my very best to be a good role model. And I just want to thank the best pageant director Holly and her team for believing in me, supporting me when I needed it and giving me the best year ever!

 So my Christmas message to you is follow your dreams and do what is right for you, work hard and believe you can do it and have fun!

 Have a very Happy Christmas and I’ll see you at the finals in February!

 Lots of love Miss Teen Galaxy England,Bethany Cammack.’

Merry Christmas Beth, thanks for being such an amazing queen!
