UK’S NATIONAL JUNIOR MISS

– It was a feeling I will never forget”

UK’S NATIONAL TEEN

CATHERINE DEKKER

I’m 17 years olf and doing Musical Theatre A-levels (sixth form). I am starting year 13 in September. I love dancing and modellng and would love to study Fashion Retail and Design after A levels.

“Wow! How can i describe what winning the title of Uks National Teen felt like in one quote?! With now being one of Holly Pirrie’s queens and officially being a part of the Pageant Girl UK family, I have never felt such a feeling of family and support. I didn’t just win the crown, I won lifelong friends and have a forever bond with everyone.
Without Holly and her incredible team, the finals wouldn’t have been as amazing as they were and I would not have met my best friends.
 Every pageant experience is different, new and exciting. Winning this title was a moment I had dream of for months and now that I am actually here I couldn’t be more grateful. I urge absolutely anyone who is even slightly doubtful of entering a pageant to just Go For It!
Lots of Love, Catherine Dekker, Your First Ever Uks National Teen 2021”

UK’S NATIONAL MISS

RACHAEL HESLOP

I am 28, a Married mum of 2 to Ella aged 2 and Charlie aged 4.

I am also the owner of two small businesses, Newcastle Resin Art and Cupcake on the Tyne Advocate for Autism acceptance and I run a support group for parents and carers of children with Speech, language and communication needs (SLCN Support UK) after my son was diagnosed as Autistic and non-verbal I am returning to studying this year to chase a life long dream of becoming a midwife

“Winning the competition means so much to me because it’s something that I genuinely never thought would happen. I first entered Pageants to gain confidence but had very little of it when I last competed 7 years ago. Coming back after all this time and now as a married mother of two, I just wanted to do it for myself and the goal was to get on stage and feel 100% confident in myself and the body that had become my new normal, that confidence must have shined through to the judges! Now I can’t wait to spend my reign continuing to inspire other women like me to take time for themselves and do the things that set their hearts on fire and feel good doing so”

UK’S NATIONAL MS

SORAYA BARRERA

UK’s National Miss was my first ever pageant! I am originally from Spain, I have been living in UK for 7 years and it’s super exciting to represent all UK MS ladies out there.

I work as the Life Sciences department Head of Production at Amplexor, a localization company, managing a team of 50 people around the world. On my free time I work as a makeup artist for bodybuilding shows and as a Fitness and Beauty YouTuber!

“Winning the UK’s National Ms title meant the world to me, as my  dream was to be apart of a pageant since I was 8 years old. Because of my height (5″) I was not allowed to participate on a pageant in Spain, so when I learnt that UK’s National Miss had no restrictions to participate I knew this was the system for me. I am is very excited for her year as the very first UK’s National Ms and I hope my #swapyourtan campaign grows more during my reign.”

UK’S NATIONAL CLASSIC MS

SARAH LANE

 I’m 48 years, a mother of 2 and married to My husband Bill.

I work for Sky as a technical advisor and in my spare time help my daughter with her company The Crown Coach.

Competing has given me a reason to focus on myself. As a busy mum my identity was defined by what I do for the children and I was able to take time to be me. It’s definitely helped my self esteem, health and given me motivation to take more time for myself.

“Winning has been incredible, I wish I’d done it sooner, I’ve spent 8 years as a pageant mum saying I’d never do a pageant and now I want every woman to compete as it’s given me so much, with other without the crown I had won in so many other ways.”
