The Pageant Land started in in 2019 and the team formed in June 2020, when the podcast hit its third season. Our aim is to encourage growth within UK pageant contestants and the UK industry as a whole. We support and promote all systems, suppliers, Queens and contestants within the UK pageant industry. 

 

We are predominately a not for profit with many of our services free of charge. We want to make sure that Pageant Land is financially self-sustaining and can stand the test of time so we do offer a few paid services and products, where all the funds raised go back into maintaining and growing Pageant Land.* This means that when you buy a product or book coaching with us you are helping to keep Pageant Land going.

 

We have a whole host of things planned over the coming months and years, but if you have any ideas on how we can support the UK industry please do reach out via email.

 

 

The team was chosen to include a wide variety of systems, skills, knowledge and experience. We wanted to make sure we had a variety of viewpoints and represented the UK industry as best we can. Read more about each of the team below.

 

*Please note that Pageant Land Fitness, although under the same brand is run financially as a separate business.

 I’m 19 years of age and based in Nottingham! 

I started my pageant journey in 2016 and haven’t stopped since, I definitely caught the pageant bug! I’ve competed in Miss England, Miss/Miss Teen Galaxy UK and I’m the reigning Miss Pageant Girl Nottingham with the hopes of becoming Miss Pageant Girl UK 2020/21! 

For me, pageantry is all about lifting women up and being their biggest cheerleader! I see myself as being a smiley face in a crowded room that you know you can always come and stand/chat with! My aim within the PageantLand Online Team, is to help support all you amazing UK pageant girls with your journeys, weather that be sharing tips ‘n’ tricks, appearance opportunities or even campaigns for you to get involved with! 

I am a full-time Teaching Assistant, my job is to help children reach their full academic potential ready for secondary school. 

Hannah Travers

I have been competing in pageants since 2017.  Winning Woman Crown & Glory England, Mrs Crown & Glory UK World and my Current title of Young European International Ms.  As part of winning the title of Mrs Crown & Glory UK World, I also won the opportunity to compete in Mrs World UK final.  After competing and being involved for the years after my reign I am now one of the directors for Crown & Glory European Pageants.

 

My Platform for YEMI and life in general is to inspire girls to have a Holistic approach to wellness.  I do this through my new blog Fit for a Queen and practicing what I preach to ensure I am being a good role model for others. I am studying nutrition so that I can provide accurate advice to anyone who asks me or may read my blog. 

 

I am also involved in Sparkles and Rhinestones, interviewing girls at pageants up and down the country.

Lucy King

I’m Lucy, full time pageant enthusiast and chief blogger for Pageant Land Online.

 

My first big pageant was Miss Galaxy UK 2019 with only 2 weeks to prepare. I didn’t place but the feeling I got on stage was exhilarating! I then returned to Galaxy in 2020 after trying out a couple Charity pageants, placed in the top 12 AND won Miss Congeniality. 

 

Getting hooked on the Pageant Land Bug doesn’t take long!

 

My aim in the Pageant World is to beat negative stereotypes and breed positivity and belief in ourselves.

Racheal Heslop

I’m Rachael and I’m a wife and mother of two living in Newcastle. I’m the kind of woman who loves to be busy all of the time, which is why I have my own cake business, am a resin artist and I work for a tech company. I first competed in Pageants in 2012 and I was instantly hooked. The glamour, the fun and most importantly the friendships gripped me from the day I discovered it.

 

I took a break after getting married and having my children, and next year I will be returning to the stage in the first-ever UK’s National Miss finals! Competing in pageants has allowed me to do some amazing things, from building confidence and fundraising to creating my platform around Speech, Language and Communication Needs which included setting up a support network for parents such as myself that have non-verbal kids! I am so excited to be part of the Pageant Land team and can’t wait to help to grow the UK pageant industry!

I've been involved in pageantry since 2014 and through it promote my platform of Goal Getters, helping women who feel stuck achieve their goals.

Mya Henry

I'm Mya, I'm a 19 year old Psychology undergraduate and have been in the pageant industry for over 5 years, my biggest pageant achievement to date is being the Winner and current titleholder of Young European International Miss 2019, a national pageant which gives the amazing opportunity of going out to the international YAMI and YMI competition.

 

Aside from pageantry I have been a content creator since the age of 12, especially on YouTube, while also having the opportunity of being an editor for other YouTube Creators.

 

Pageants for me were a way to gain back my confidence to accept and be myself again as well as give me the support system I needed to progress and achieve my biggest successes in life!

 

I am also an advocate for the benefits of Mindfulness and Wellbeing alongside mental health and the benefits that adapting a mindful approach can have on success and physical wellbeing.
