By  |  0 Comments

1. Could you tell us what you enjoyed the most about the competition what winning has meant to you?

Mostly, I enjoyed meeting new people. Face of the Globe was a massive opportunity for me to meet friends that I would never have met otherwise. I was so lucky to be in a competition with so many girls I feel I made genuine friendships with as it made the week even more enjoyable.

I put my heart and soul into Face of the Globe. This was my first pageant so I had no idea what was involved and had to learn everything, I spent hours researching pageants and I’ve probably watched every ‘how to’ video that’s out there, being awarded Teen Face of the Globe was the cherry on top of the cake.

2.     If you could be any Disney character which one would you be and why?

I wasn’t sure what Disney character I would be so I took an online test, haha. I’m not sure the answer is completely right but this is what it said, ‘You are most like Pinocchio! You like to work towards your dreams you have, but you sometimes get tempted by the devil in disguise. But when it comes down to it, you’re quite a happy person, who just want to be the best they can be!’. I guess it was correct but I would like to think I’m not tempted by the devil in disguise.

3.     Who is your role model and why?
My role model has to be Katy Perry but not for the obvious reasons. Katy Perry worked herself up from having practically no chance of being able to do what she loves to being where she is now. She had many doors closed in her face but she carried on working hard and didn’t give up on her dreams, even when they seemed impossible. Like Katy Perry, I would like to be a singer but this is not why she is my role model. I feel she encourages everyone to believe in themselves and reach for their dreams even if they seem unachievable.

4.     In the future, if you won the lottery what would you spend your winnings on?
 It’s a given I would donate to charity and make sure my family are well looked after. If there was enough left over I would love to buy a penthouse in New York City.

5.     Following your win in Disneyland Paris your next 18 months as Face of the Globe are bound to be incredible, what things would you like to achieve over the coming months?
As I’ve previously said, this is my first pageant and I had no idea what to expect before I took part in Face of the Globe. I know many people that still have a negative view on pageants and I would love to be able to change this and get people to join in and see how much fun they are. I also know many girls that would like to take part in pageants but don’t have the confidence to do so; I would love to be able to help these girls grow in confidence and give them as much advice as I can on how I was able to win my crown.

6.     What do you love most about your home town or country?
I think I’m very fortunate to live in Scotland as it is such a beautiful and picturesque part of the world. My home town, Livingston, is very family orientated with lots to do but the added bonus it is smack bang in the middle of Edinburgh and Glasgow so I have all the benefits of two major cities within easy reach.

7.     In 5 years time where would you like to be with your career and home life?
In the next 5 years I would like to have finished school with good grades. I would absolutely love to have a record deal and be at the start of a successful singing career.

8.     What are your achievements in life?
I’m proud to say that winning Face of the Globe is, to date, my biggest achievement. I’m also very fortunate to have had main roles in a few shows and had the opportunities to sing at many events.

9.     Do you have any hobbies, if so what are they and how did you get in to them?
My main hobby is singing; I have loved to sing for as long as I can remember and really enjoy being on stage singing to audiences. The first time I ever sung to an audience was when I was ten years old and I sung in my primary school Christmas carol night; there is a video on Youtube of this night but you’ll be hard pushed to get the name of it out of me. My Grandma then found me a singing teacher, who I have now been going to for about 4 years, and I have never got bored of my love of singing.
I also enjoy going to stage school where I get classes on dancing, singing and acting, unfortunately, I cannot dance to save my life!

10.  What do you enjoy most about your life?
I’m extremely fortunate to have a very enjoyable life. I love the opportunities I have been given and know how lucky I am to have experienced many things throughout my life. I really enjoy spending time with my friends and family, I’m very fortunate to have an extremely supportive family and group of friends, and I also enjoy going to school.

11.  What are you currently studying at school?
I’ m currently studying for my 4th year qualifications; I’m studying Music, French, Spanish, Business Management, Chemistry, Maths and English.
 
12.  What are your ambitions?
My ambitions are to be successful with my singing, to travel and learn about different cultures by going to festivals all over the world and to be happy with no regrets.

13.  What 3 things could you not live without?
Firstly, I could not live without a microphone. It is not just singing that I love, it is singing to an audience and sharing what I love to do with everybody who is listening.

Secondly, I could not live without my Mum. My Mum comes to absolutely everything I do and likes to call herself my ‘Mumager’. Not only is she my Mumager, she is also my personal shopper, my makeup artist, my hairdresser, my consoler, my rollercoaster buddy and my biggest fan. My whole family give me the most amazing support but my Mum is always there by my side.

Lastly, my phone, my phone keeps me connected to the world of social media which is a massive part of my life. It also lets me talk to and share things with friends and family who may not be close by.

14. What are your dislikes?
I am a very positive person so have very few dislikes as I do try and see the positives in everything. So I’d have to say negative people, I don’t like people putting down others just because they don’t have the same opinions or ambitions. Personally, I feel without having a positive nature you will struggle to achieve your goals. On second thoughts, broccoli, I really don’t like broccoli, hahaha.

15.  How do you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as a bubbly, positive, outgoing, open minded and approachable person. I’m always there to lend a hand and give 100% to all that I do.

What are your favourite hobbies and why? My all time favourite hobby is singing. I fell in love with singing when I was given my first solo at ten years old. Ever since I have found myself at my happiest when I’m performing on a stage. Personally, I find singing very therapeutic as it takes all my cares away. I go to weekly singing lessons and I love to perform to an audience. I also attend stage school and a local theatre group where we are currently rehearsing for our production of Bugsy Malone which we will be performing in December at the Church Hill Theatre in Edinburgh.

Another one of my favourite hobbies is riding rollercoasters. I love the rush of excitement you get when you are on a rollercoaster and have been on nearly every large rollercoaster in the UK with the exception of the Big One in Blackpool which is on my to do list. After I have completed my list of rollercoaster’s I want to do a skydive. I am hoping to do this for my 16th birthday.

What is your biggest ambition: My biggest ambition is to be successful with my singing and to perform in Madison Square Garden in NYC. I have also dreamed about living in New York since I visited with my family a couple years ago.

I believe that no matter where you come from, if you have a dream and ambition and you stay focused and work hard you can achieve anything. I would love to be a role model for others and help people by providing motivation and encouragement for them to achieve their dreams.

Charity you would nominate to receive 10% of our fundraising if you are the highest fundraiser and your reasons why: The charity I would nominate is Smalls for All. Smalls for All is a small charity who donates pants and bras to girls in Uganda. We all take wearing underwear for granted but there are thousands of women who don’t have any, putting them at risk of disease. For thousands of girls education is disrupted every month as they cannot attend school without underwear. I feel this charity also ties in with the work of Rainbow Child Foundation as they provide the sanitation and Smalls provides pants allowing females a greater chance of a full education. As an all girl pageant we can all fully appreciate a pair of pants being absolutely essential. I feel very strongly for Smalls for All as they provide simple items that we all take for granted every single day of our lives.

Languages spoken or would like to learn: I am currently in my fourth year at high school and I am studying French and Spanish. My first language is English. I think French and Spanish are both very beautiful languages and I am very passionate about learning them. I feel knowing languages will help me in the future as I love learning about different cultures.

Countries you have visited: I have been very lucky to have visited a few places. I have been to Majorca, Paris, New York, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and England.

Favourite Disney movie and why: My favourite Disney movie is Brave. Brave is about a princess called Merida. Merida is being forced to marry a prince and carry on tradition. Merida, however, does not want to follow the tradition and marry a man she does not love, she wants to be her own person and stand on her own two feet.

Brave is the first Disney princess movie that does not feature a love interest but instead shows independence and belief. Brave also shows a great representation of woman’s rights and tells us that women are strong and do not need men to think for them. On a larger scale, Merida’s character shows us that if you strongly believe in what you want to do and not in what others are telling you to do, you can achieve anything.

Of course, I also love the Scottish theme in this movie!
