Miss World entrant richer for the experience

Truganina’s Miss World Australia entrant, Jenna Seymour, may not have had the fairytale ending she hoped for, but she’s not complaining.

“I can honestly say I’ve had a blast,” the 24-year-old said on social media after representing Victoria in the national final last weekend.

“It was an amazing experience and I’ve met some truly amazing people.”

The former teachers’ aide competed against other finalists from around the nation in Perth after winning the Victorian heat in July.

Queensland’s Tess Alexander took the crown and will compete in the Miss World finals later this year.

Ms Seymour said getting to the national finals was exciting and she was proud to have raised more than $5000 for children’s charity Variety, which empowers and adds fun to the lives of children who are sick, disadvantaged or with special needs.

“Although the competition is a big part of Miss World, it’s important not to forget the real reason we do it,” she said.

“It’s not all about the fame or glory of the crown but for the children of Variety.

“The Variety charity helps give kids an opportunity to express themselves when they may not have had that opportunity otherwise.”
