  • What is your most unusual experience?:
  • Describe your proudest/happiest moment:
    My proudest moment would have to be being crowned Miss Manchester High 2014. Being the youngest to ever enter the pageant and not the stereotypical pageant queen, I was ‘attacked’ with a lot of harsh comments while the competition progressed. However, through determination and continuous support from friend and family I was crowned Miss Manchester High 2014 at the age of 15, making history as the youngest to ever win the pageant.
