The New Year is a time for new beginnings and also a time for new partnerships. With that in mind, In The City Magazine are pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring Birmingham’s very own “Junior Miss West Midlands Galaxy”, Tegan Heath in her campaign to be crowned with the national title of “Junior Miss Galaxy UK”.
Junior Miss Galaxy is one of the many titles awarded to winners of pageantry competitions run by Galaxy Pageants UK. Other titles include Mrs Galaxy, Ms Galaxy, Miss Galaxy and Miss Teen Galaxy, with Junior Miss Galaxy being awarded to girls aged 12 up. Tegan has already been awarded the title of Junior Miss Galaxy West Midlands for 2016/2017 and now has her sights on the highest title; Junior Miss Galaxy UK.
You can expect to hear more about Tegan’s journey to win Junior Miss Galaxy in the February edition of In The City Magazine, where we will be running a spotlight feature to introduce Tegan to our readership. Since being awarded “Junior Miss West Midlands Galaxy”, Tegan’s dream has been to achieve the national title. This is just not about winning a crown; Tegan wants to make a difference and be a role model for girls and help others.
Since being awarded “Junior Miss West Midlands Galaxy”, Tegan’s dream has been to achieve the national title. This is just not about winning a crown; Tegan wants to make a difference and be a role model for girls and help others.
Tegan has already begun the long journey in her bid to achieve her dream, making public appearances at local businesses and even popping up at Birmingham’s famous Christmas Market. Tegan has also been involved in multiple charities and charitable incentives. Over the Christmas period, Tegan set up her own used books appeal for local charity shops, helping to collect second-hand books which could then be donated to local stores to help them with their Christmas trading.
Tegan also took a direct approach to being charitable over the Christmas period, getting involved with Birmingham’s homeless community as she brought food and drinks for some of its most vulnerable members. Even on Christmas Day, Tegan visited Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham to bring chocolates to patients who didn’t have visitors. These acts showed that charity need not come as a result of a greater campaign, but can be personal acts of kindness that can be participated in every day.
It’s that level of community involvement that speaks volumes about Tegan – she isn’t just in this to win a title, but to represent good values and act as a role model. Be it getting involved with local businesses, or just doing what other kids do, like going shopping or visiting the German Market, Tegan approaches it with an eye to getting where she wants to be. As for Tegan’s Post-Christmas plans, she will be teaming up with her friend Coco Doney, winner of “Little Miss Teen GB”. Together they will work on a number of charities and charitable causes throughout 2017.
Galaxy Pageants UK began in 2008 and is a national competition, operating regionally throughout the UK. For more information visit www.galaxypageantsuk.com.
Tegan is raising money on Just Giving for The Christie charity, a group created to support cancer patients. Help raise money for this great cause by donating directly to their fundraising page –
JustGiving sends your donation straight to The Christie and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
Keep an eye out for the February edition of In The City Magazine to hear more about Tegan’s journey.
