Early life and family
Hawkins was born in Holmesville, New South Wales, Australia and currently resides in Sydney. She attended West Wallsend High School. She is one of four children, and her parents are of Australian heritage. Hawkins was a former cheerleader for the Newcastle Knights rugby league team, and the Hunter Pirates basketball team and also worked as a model. It was as a model that she was cast as Miss Australia for the Miss Universe competition. Hawkins also worked as a choreographer for a dance team that toured Australia specialising in Hip-Hop and Ballet.
Born in the Australian state of New South Wales – in Holmesville, Newcastle to be precise – in 1984, Jennifer was truly shocked when she won the title of Miss Universe, as anyone who watched the 2004 event will attest to.
Even Donald Trump was impressed, at the time saying that she was “The most beautiful Miss Universe I have seen in many, many years”.
The youngest of four children, one of Jennifer’s earliest pastimes was dancing, and aged five she was already learning the finer points of balance, grace and poise.
A hard working student, Jennifer Hawkins was educated at Barnsley Primary School, followed by West Wallsend High School, during which time her passion for dance didn’t wane.
As well as finishing school with top marks, Jennifer continued her study and gained a legal secretarial and office administration certificate, which in 2001 helped her land a job with Newcastle law firm Braye Cragg.
Also in 2001, Jennifer’s years of dance practice paid off, and she won a national dance competition. Following this major dancing accolade, she developed an interest in water sports and she took up surfing, recounting how good it felt to finally ride an ocean wave: “It was such an exhilarating moment. It was like being accepted into the men’s club as it is such a male-dominated sport and a fundamental way of life in Newcastle.”
Jennifer Hawkins’ next big career move combined both her growing interest in modeling and also dancing, as she signed up with the cheer squad for the Newcastle Knights Rugby League team, and even became the NRL’s cheergirl of the year.
