Tegan Martin is Miss Universe Australia 2014

Miss Universe Australia 2014 winner Tegan Martin

10 years after Jennifer Hawkins was crowned Miss Universe, Newcastle will have another contestant in the international contest.

21 year old Tegan Martin was recently crowned as the new Miss Universe Australia 2014 held at the Sofitel Melbourne in Collins last June 6, beating out 30 other conternders.

Tegan had already competed in 2011 and 2013 past editions of the pageant. She will head to Donald Trump’s Miss Universe 2014 pageant later this December, with the chance of emulating Newcastle product Jennifer Hawkins, who was rocketed to stardom in 2004 when she claimed the Miss Universe crown in front of a global audience of 800 million.

Martin, from Jewells, is now based in Sydney where she works as a model, appearing in the 2011 series of Australia’s Next Top Model. She is also studying nutritional medicine with the goal to use her studies to shed light on youth mental illness.

Sydney’s Monika Radulovic and Briden Star and Brisbane’s Danielle Johnson completed the top five finalists.
