Bennett in one sentence – Talia Bennett is a stunning and lovely Kiwi beauty queen and one of the most beautiful brunettes from New Zealand.
It is a wonderful honor for me to be asked by the Miss Universe New Zealand organizers to represent New Zealand at Miss Universe 2012.
I have come a long way with my public speaking through competing in beauty pageants which has various personal benefits and helps in my business dealings.
She is a qualified commercial property valuer.
Her hobbies are tennis, fashion and yoga.
In 2011 Talia was the first runner-up. Priyani Puketapu won the Miss New Zealand title that year.
In 2012 Talia was the first runner-up for the second time but on 31 July 2012 the South African-born Avianca Bohm was stripped of her Miss New Zealand crown because she didn’t have the New Zealand citizenship, which was then awarded to Bennett.
Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
