Hannah Seaman, Miss British Columbia

Hannah Seaman, a person who stutters and the subject of a 2006 documentary about stuttering, has won the crown in a competition for the title of Miss B.C.. A graduate of fine arts and a student of drama, Hannah did not hide her stuttering during the competition, and even did a monologue for the judges during the talent portion.

"I know how alone I used to feel, and no one deserves to feel unworthy or like an outcast because of something they can’t control,” she says. “I just proved to myself what I can do, even with a disability.”

In 2006 when Hannah was just 15, students at the Vancouver Film School featured her in a documentary about stuttering.

Hannah will be writing an article about her experiences in the Miss BC competition for the BC Association of People who Stutter.
