Anna Makin from Falkirk narrowly missed out on becoming an international beauty queen last week.

Anna (15) flew to Orlando last week to compete in the international final of Miss Teen Galaxy where she placed first runner up!

Anna spent an amazing week at the Galaxy Pageants in Orlando where she took part in photo shoots, interviews and glamourous parties and took to the international stage to compete for the crown against teenagers from all over the world.

Not only did Anna place first runner-up, she also impressed the judges with her personality and won the best in interview award.

Since winning the title of Miss Teen Galaxy Scotland in February, Anna has spent lots of her free time raising money for various charities including The Christie, Cash for Kids and the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors. Last month, with the help of her personal trainer, David Dipinto, Anna held a charity spinathon where the distance from her home in Falkirk to the Galaxy Pageants final in Orlando was cycled. Anna managed to raise over £1600.

Three members of Team Galaxy UK won international crowns – Mrs Galaxy is Sarah Pritchard from Manchester, Ms Galaxy is Rubie Marie from Birmingham and Junior Miss Galaxy is Halle-Blu from West Yorkshire.
