Teen Diamond UK – Katinka

Teen Miss Diamond UK – Katinka 

I am Katinka McDowell, I’m 16 years old & your Teen Diamond UK.
I have been doing pageants 8 years, with my first pageant being Miss Diamond UK in 2016. A year later, I won my first title Junior Miss Diamond UK 2017 & I just can’t help coming back!
I am Autistic (& have ADHD) which is the reason behind my platform ‘Autism Understood’. I want people to understand the impact of being autistic, the challenges we experience and how that affects mental health.
I’m Year 11, taking my GCSE’s soon & I hope to study Art & Design at college next year.
