Celebration of Success for Ponteland Teenager

Hannah Elliott aged 14, a pupil of Ponteland Community High School has her sights firmly set on the stars after being awarded the title of Junior Miss Newcastle Galaxy 2014 in a national Beauty Pageant.  Hannah will now compete for the National Title of Junior Miss Galaxy Great Britain at the Galaxy Pageant Finals being held in Lancashire on the 8th March.

Hannah is delighted to have been given the opportunity to take part in this event and is very proud of her new title which allows her to represent the North East in what is deemed to be a very grand finale indeed.  As well as being able to wear some stunning outfits during the finals, Hannah will be interviewed to determine her ambitions and personality; extra points are also awarded for work carried out within her community and for fundraising.

Hannah is a terrific role model for other teenagers, a grade A student who is determined to make the world a better place.  Hannah is regularly involved with fundraising particularly for her local dance school as well as other community activities and is renowned for putting a smile on the faces of everyone she meets.  A very talented performer and dancer Hannah has entertained 1000’s of people from the North East since the age of 6 having appeared in every Theatre in Newcastle & Sunderland including the Theatre Royal and the Sunderland Empire Theatre.  Hannah is currently in rehearsals with the West End Musical Theatre Company where she will be undertaking the lead role of Dorothy in their production of the Wizard of Oz in June 2014 at Northern Stage.

Hannah is being supported on her Pageant quest by local photographer Joe Laws and Elaine Milbourne Performing Arts School.  We wish her lots of luck in finals.
