Caitlin hopes to do her town proud at beauty pageant

by Tom Martin (November 2021)

A SOUTHPORT woman who said she was “body shamed for being too thin” as a youngster will proudly represent her town in this weekend’s Miss Galaxy UK Final.

Caitlin Ahern, 25, said she received nasty insults when she was growing up due to her appearance, but she has now gained “a new level of confidence” after competing in beauty pageants.

After being named Miss Southport Galaxy, she will now compete in the UK competition on Sunday, November 28 in Chorley, with the winner to jet off to America to compete in Miss Galaxy International.

Caitlin, who works in the social care sector at Delta Care Ltd within the HR department, said: “After being bullied growing up and being body shamed for my 'too thin' appearance, I have used this as fuel to enter a pageant which has grown my self-esteem and self- confidence. As well as setting healthy habits to improve myself physically and mentally. This experience has taught me to be proud of who you are.  

“Miss Galaxy has allowed me to gain a new level of confidence and has given me the opportunity to raise money to a variety of different charities. I can't wait to express myself and my quirks on the catwalk, while proudly representing my home town. I am extremely honoured and thankful for this opportunity.”

Caitlin said she raised more than £1,000 after taking part in a sky dive and also helped organise a ‘pyjama day’ in work to raise money for Children in Need.
