Interview with Sophia Stephanie Haggarty, Tiny Miss Galaxy Edinburgh
Firstly thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions about your pageant journey for my pageant lockdown blog. It’s been lovely getting to know fellow pageant queens and more about the systems that they represent.
What made you enter pageants ?
My mum used to years ago and put me in
This is not your first pageant, do you mind telling me what previous title you hold ?
Crown and Glory Charity Queen
What made you decide to compete your current system ?
The Galaxy System had a good name and the girls that we had met where lovely and seemed supportive of each other.
What the best thing that pageants have taught you ?
About charity work and making friends

I play the Piano and I also enjoy singing
Are you wanting to carry on competing in pageants ?
Yes and I like the stage and crowns

We have done a lot of charity pageants including winning a good few. We have supported other pageant girls with their own fundraising. Have helped fundraise for other charities. Done my own fundraising and have some sponsors that have helped me so I have promoted them.
