Bearsden beauty Laura MacMillan (18) was delighted to be crowned Miss Teen Galaxy Scotland 2015 at Park Hall Hotel in Manchester recently.

Laura is studying international sports management at Caledonian University in Glasgow. She is also a competitive figure skater and a fully qualified dance teacher.

At the grand final Laura represented East Dunbartonshire and she will now be representing Scotland in Orlando this summer.

She won 1st place in her category against contestants from all over Scotland and now goes on to compete at the Galaxy International Pageant finals in Florida in August.

Galaxy Pageants is one of the top five international pageants held in the USA and Laura has won an all expenses paid trip to the event to compete against girls from all over the world.

She said: “I cannot believe I’m Miss Teen Galaxy Scotland!

“I competed last year and I was placed in the top five, which I was not expecting at all as it was my very first pageant.

“After having the most amazing experience and making so many new friends, I decided to re compete the following year and I won.

“I could not believe it and to this day I still can’t quite believe it as I having been dreaming about it for so long.

“It’s honestly a dream come true.”
