hi everyone 🙂

My name is Hannah Etienne (she/her) and I’m a high school student from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Comfortable in front of or behind the camera, I’ve been dancing since I was two and competing in pageants since 2017. Currently, I am National American Miss Illinois Teen! I’ve also held the title of Miss Lake Zurich’s Outstanding Teen, local National American Miss titles, and a national Outstanding American Miss title.

I absolutely love traveling and exploring God’s creation. More recently I’ve become interested in exploring the power of social media to drive real change, and dismantling systems of oppression.

I created Protecting Planet A to be a space to welcome beginners to learning the science behind the climate crisis, and what individuals can do to help. My goal is to make protecting Earth a priority for my generation. Follow me on Instagram here and subscribe to my YouTube channel here.
