Las Vegas, Nevada
Official Regency International Competition Greetings:
On behalf of the entire staff, welcome to the 3rd Annual Regency International Pageant. We are pleased to say that we have contestants from all over the world joining us this year. As contestants you will gain experience, friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. The Regency International Pageant system was founded to create a new event for girls, teens, and women. Our system has two main objectives: Assist winners in furthering their education and to assist local animal charities. Our queens will each receive scholarship money that can be used at the college of their choice. Our queens work together every year to raise money and volunteer at local animal charities. At every Regency International Pageant event whether it is a preliminary, state or international pageant we give half of the entry money of every ticket sold to spectators to our animal charities. This money we donate goes to help foster, feed, and provide medical care for these animals. We know that only one contestant in each division will be crowned, but we hope each contestant will treasure her own personal victory that comes from her accomplishments. To each of our contestants…………Good wishes and best of luck!

She has been a Young carer, from the age of 3 for her physically disabled mum and her brother who suffers a 1 in a billion, genetic condition that leaves him medically complex and severely disabled.
Although she has had responsibilities young and been exposed to many children with life limiting conditions, she has developed into a compassionate and generous young lady. She is committed to fundraising for Julia’s House Hospice, not only because her brother has been supported by them for nearly 6 years but because she wants to help children that have extra struggles in their life.
Pageants have been life changing for Katinka who has overcome severe anxiety, caused by her social situation & being bullied at school. She has grown from strength to strength with the support of Ms Regency International, Dani De-bear as an inspiration and is very excited to follow in her footsteps and take to the Las Vegas stage.
Katinka has many aspirations for the future. She is very artistic and has an avid interest in fashion & styling. Her current project is to design and make a range of pretty clothes adapted for wheelchair users and special need children. Her aim is to have a fashion show where the disabled children can take to the catwalk and shine.
Her other passion is cooking. She has been attending cookery school since she was 7 and is able to cook sweet and savoury dishes, following a recipe and experimenting. She would love to be in Junior Masterchef UK (wearing a crown of course!)
Winning Little Miss Regency International 2017 would be a dream come true. She would use the title to show other girls that you can come through adversity by standing proud, being kind & thoughtful, pushing through your fears and following her life mottos of “never let anyone dull your sparkle” and “there is no such thing as too much glitter”!!

Born in the city of Manhattan, the heart and soul of New York, I am Hanna Strnad-Diaz, 17 years old and your current Miss Teen Southwest. Since I can remember, my entire life has consisted of being on the go, due to the fact that I am a daughter of dual military parents. The advantage of being a military child is that I have had the blessing to travel and quickly adapt anywhere around the U.S. and abroad. I’ve lived in New York, Florida, Connecticut, Boston, New Jersey, Virginia, Arizona, Puerto Rico, Missouri, Hawaii, and currently in the beautiful Sun City in the state of Texas. One fun fact about me: before the age of one I was fortunate enough to travel to and through 25 U.S. states and to include the beautiful island of Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
Thankfully, during my journey of my military lifestyle, I am open-minded toward other cultures and divergent beauty. This is why my platform contained “Diversity is Power,” because I have faced hardships and difficulty accepting my distinct physical appearance. Through those trials and tribulations, it has built a confident, outspoken and powerful queen. It is my pleasure to make sure people feel comfortable and break out their shell. A huge example is when I had an honoring opportunity to be a counselor at the Candlelighters of El Paso for diagnosed or survivors of cancer. My job was to make sure the kids and teenagers felt content, optimistic and loved who they are. These kids were truly inspirational and outgoing. They became my best friends. Though I was there to impact their lives, they sure knew how to impact mine. Shout out to my Candleslighters Kids.
I admire my mother for influencing strong work ethic in the household and being a striving U.S. Army soldier. Sleep is overrated because someone is out there to take your position. God helps those who help themselves. –Mom

When human beings experience trauma or a severe life stressor, it is common for their lives to unravel, but Paradise is anything but common! After overcoming many health obstacles, Paradise still stands firm today, fighting the good fight. One of Paradise Rodriguez’s greatest passions is trying and conquering new challenges that are presented to her then motivating others to have the confidence to take chances on themselves.
While Paradise has not had the privilege to have a formal college experience, she never allowed that to stop her from continuously learning and furthering her education. She quickly found herself submerged within the Business and Marketing industry. She knew she could help others understand the importance of building their brand, confidence, and enthusiasm reflective of the way she has done for herself. Paradise also has plan to attend her dream college, a goal she refuses to give up on.
Understanding that no single approach is the right one for every individual, Paradise sought out to travel extensively around the world. Amidst all of her travels and experiences, she’s built and strengthened her relationships providing great confidence to new business partners.
Paradise is known to be professional and friendly yet extremely focused. It has been said that her drive is what makes all of Paradise’s success possible. Tackling everything from Acting, Dancing, and Modeling to becoming a Marketing Manager, Paradise brings certain flexibility to each task she is confronted with. Having been on multiple sides of projects, Paradise understands and believes the mindset of “quality vs. quantity”. Understanding this allows Paradise to put her best work forward in any circumstance.
Armed with a heart of gold and determination like no other, Paradise is dedicated to continually building her brand and the brands of those attached to her through her ever-growing skills in the multi-faceted world of the performing arts and business, but that isn’t all.
Paradise does a great deal of charity work. While she tends to prefer to do her good works outside of the public eye, one of her greatest accomplishments was launching her non-profit “Catch a Falling Star”. One of Paradise’s life goals is to help couples and peers find love within themselves and encourage them to give themselves their best chance. Paradise believes “only after you have healed and found true love and value within your own soul, can you offer a piece of your heart to another”. A phrase that is widely known and coined by Paradise herself, “You can sit in the corner and cry or you can go out and dance in the rain. Either way, the storm is coming”, is often used to encourage others to go out and seek happiness no matter how dark things may appear. Paradise Rodriguez provides a refreshingly positive, yet realistic outlook on life and is known to be wise beyond her years.

I have now worked with over 1,000 young girls and the feedback has gone beyond my wildest dreams! This will forever be my personal platform.
I have been within the Pageant Industry for over 7 years now, earning 16 National Titles and developing my knowledge in all areas. It’s certainly a passion of mine and many ask why? Why do I compete? Well because someone told me I couldn’t. I was told I would never win unless I lost weight, I refused to accept that and am now celebrated for having curves – even earning the Title of Plus Size Model of the Year 2016!
I became very sick with Thyroid cancer 3 years ago and was put into a Coma, this right here is why I will continue to work and live every moment to the fullest. My ethos is very much embrace who you are, live it and own it. I’m one of the lucky one’s; who after a long 2 years, has recovered from my Cancer and am now ready to come back and rebuild my Platform changing the lives of young girls who are inspiring me to push further than I thought possible!
My final note – Treat every sidewalk like a Catwalk and no one can touch you.
