Universe knows beauty

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

THREE young, beautiful and ambitious Eastern Suburbs women will be vying for the chance to follow in the footsteps of former Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins.

  • On May 22, Bondi resident Rique Sharman, 22, Potts Point residents Rochelle Fox, 19, and Jesinta Campbell, 18, will strut their stuff at the NSW final of the Miss Universe Australia pageant.

  • The trio of beauties are among the 20 contestants from NSW in the running to progress to the national final on June 17.
    And while there’s no doubting the girls have a healthy rivalry, they were delighted that all three would compete for the coveted crown.

  • “The three of us are friends - we hang out together all the time so we’re pretty happy that we all made it through,” Miss Fox said.
    Miss Sharman moved to Bondi from Byron Bay about a month ago to pursue her career and study TV presenting at NIDA. She met Miss Campbell at a modelling gig and they have since become close friends.

  • “It’s been good to have a friend who’s in the industry and doing it for the same reasons,” said Miss Sharman, who has quickly settled in to her new Bondi home. “I love Bondi, too. I really feel at home here because it’s like Byron in many ways, just a little bit more ‘happening’,” she said.

  • Meanwhile, the success of Miss Hawkins in 2004 seems to have inspired many young woman to enter the Miss Universe pageant.
    Organisers of the Australian leg of the contest have been overwhelmed with the number of entries this year, with 800 applicants in NSW alone.
    Miss Sharman said the pageant was her “number one focus”.

  • “It’s what I’ve been working on for the last few years so I’m putting all my energy towards it . . . it’s a great platform for other things,” she said.
