Jenna Lee Seymour studied Psychology at Macquarie University (Sydney) and was crowned Miss Earth Australia 2012. Studying to become a Sports Psychologist, the 22 year old currently works as a Student Learning Support Officer, working with students who have learning difficulties in the western suburbs of Sydney.
A committed charity supporter, Jenna joined the Miss Earth pageant in 2011 for its strong dedication to the protection of the environment. In 2012 she was awarded the titles of Miss Photogenic, Best in Swimwear, Best in Evening Gown, the Green Achievement Award, and the Producer’s Innovation Award before being crowned Miss Earth Australia and representing her country in Manila, Philippines. At the International pageant she received numerous awards including a gold and two bronze medals, the “Miss Enchanted Kindness” award, and was named runner-up in the Evening Gown competition.
During her time in the Philippines, Jenna worked alongside the candidates in encouraging environmental sustainability efforts throughout the nation. She was selected to lead the launch of Manila’s first Bike Lanes alongside the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman and Manila Mayor. Not only did she continue these environmental campaigns throughout the competition, she was also chosen as one of 15 candidates to model for international clothing brand “Forever 21”, appearing on numerous radio broadcasts and interviews for the iconic beauty brand ‘Ponds’.
Since the Miss Earth pageant Jenna has been an active member of the community, organising tree planting activities and educational days with students, and volunteering as part of the Kanangra Reserve and Peppermint Reserve Bush care initiatives. Her title has also seen her become a spokeswoman at local council meetings and appearing as a special guest in the annual Blacktown City Festival where she paraded with pop band ‘The Collective”.
“This pageant has enabled me to step up as a public figure in which people can look up to, especially the younger generation. I have been blessed with the opportunity of being an Australian ambassador in launching our nation’s environmental efforts on an international stage.
This year, Jenna will compete in Miss Universe Australia where she aims to use her success to continue her charity work and give her an international presence.
