Rachael Tate, the Welsh and International Miss Galaxy, wishes you a very, merry Christmas!

Rachael Tate won the title of Miss Galaxy Wales in March this year but her achievements did not stop there! After an incredible week at the Galaxy International Pageant in Orlando, Rachael was crowned the overall winner of Miss Galaxy! She now looks back on everything that has happened this year since she first won the Welsh crown…..

Miss Galaxy has been an amazing pageant journey for me so far, and this time of year takes me back to a time when I started my Galaxy journey on the way to becoming Miss Galaxy 2013. It was about this time in November 2012 when I started my appearances and preparation on my way to the Miss Galaxy Wales Finals in March of 2013. I understand that right now, many girls are on the… same path that I was.

Galaxy will be one of the best journeys of your life and it is important to make the most of every appearances opportunity, every bit of pageant prep and enjoy every moment that this competition brings- by that I mean now (in the run up to the competitions) and when you get to that fabulous Galaxy stage in March 2014 – and for some of you to America! You will have the time of your life with lots of opportunities coming your way.

If you are reading this and have not yet entered Miss Galaxy then please do – It will be the best thing that you have done – you will make memories and friends to last a lifetime! I know that this time of year is also a busy one in terms of festivities and on that note I hope that everyone enjoys the Christmas season!! I want to wish you all the best in your pageant preparations and have a lovely Christmas!
