Miss Universe Australia, Tegan Martin, placed in the Top 10 at the Miss Universe 2014 pageant, held recently in the USA at Florida’s International University in Doral.
Tegan’s determination paid off after entering the Miss Universe Australia pageant for the third year, when she took out the crown in Melbourne on 6 June 2014, going on to represent Australia at the international competition.
A Nutrition student from Newcastle, New South Wales, 22 year old Tegan, hopes one day to use the power of her nutritional medicine, health and wellbeing knowledge to shed some light on the issue of mental healthy in our youth.
Contestants representing 88 countries competed in three categories: swimwear, eveningwear and interview.
The 63rd Miss Universe pageant saw Miss Colombia, Paulina Vega Deippa crowned the 2014 Miss Universe title holder.
Miss Universe Australia National Director, Deborah Miller said “We are incredibly proud of Tegan’s placement in the top 10 and excited for her to come home to Australia as we search for the 2015 title holder”.
