Teen Queen: Miss Teen Kent Galaxy 2011 Hannah Coleman

Miss Teen Kent Galaxy 2011, Hannah Coleman from Hawkhurst is not just <br/><br/>a pretty face, she's used her title to help fundraise for Hospice in the Weald...

Tell us about yourself
My names Hannah Coleman, Im 17 years old and live in Hawkhurst with my parents and big sister Victoria. Until the age of 16, I was a pupil at The Duke of Yorks School in Dover. I now attend Bexhill College.

What are you doing now?
Im currently in my second year of A-levels at Bexhill College. Im studying Psychology, English Literature and Drama.

Your future ambitions?

After my A-levels, I plan on studying Psychology at university.

Whats best about Kent? Kent has so much heritage with loads of great places to visit. Im very fond of Great Maytham Hall in Rolvenden, I fell in love with the house and grounds when I did a photo shoot there last autumn. I live close to Bodiam Castle and its great for family days out. Kent is also fantastic for shopping: Canterbury, Tunbridge Wells and Bluewater are all under an hours drive for me, which is pretty handy! I also love the location and how, living in Kent, I can be in London in an hour and France in a couple of hours.

Your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy running, singing and baking and I waitress at weekends at The Royal Oak in Hawkhurst. I also enjoy entering beauty pageants I currently hold the title of Miss Teen Kent Galaxy 2011 and I will be competing in the England finals which take place in Cheshire this month. The winner will go on to represent England in the Miss Teen International Final which takes place in July in the USA. Girls enter beauty pageants for many different reasons, but personally I have found them to be a great experience to gain confidence, improve public speaking skills and to meet new people. The thing Ive enjoyed the most so far in preparing for the Miss Teen Galaxy pageant is putting my title to good use and getting involved in charity fundraising and in community events prior to the months leading up to the competition. I was initially invited along to a charity polo match in August in support of Hospice in the Weald and helped to raise 700 of raffle tickets. Since then I have continued to try to help the charity as much as I can with street collections, a sponsored 200ft abseil over Bewl Water (which raised 300) and I volunteer at some of their events. Apart from the charity appearances, Ive also attended lots of events in the county, awarded prizes at local primary schools, presented prizes at the Autorama classic car show in Tunbridge Wells, rosettes at a dog show and I even switched on the Hawkhurst Christmas lights!

The last book you read?
Im currently reading The Essential Difference by Simon Baron-Cohen. My psychology teacher recommended it to me and I havent been able to put it down. This is a good read for anybody who, like me, is fascinated by psychology. Its full of loads of studies on the difference between the male and female brain.
