Alanna Richards

I am a dancer with many passions. Creativity, resourcefulness and a drive to thrive keep me pushing through life’s challenges


Why would you like to win?

It’s 2018, girl boss is the new sexy, and I’m doing just that. With a varied background in astrophysics, languages, dance and yoga; I would use this incredible opportunity to showcase my drive and passion for life, while inspiring others to do the same - and having a hell of a lot of fun in the process!


What would you do with the money if you win?

I would use the funds to kickstart my own innovative business, something I have been working towards for a long while! A forward-thinking cat cafe in York, which would prioritise animal welfare, promote sustainable living and plant-based nutrition. It would be my small but meaningful contribution to the world, not only providing cats and animal lovers with a place to relax and unwind; but also helping with community projects, and giving a percentage of the revenue to charities close to my heart.
