Danielle Jamie – Miss Universe Singapore 2023 Finalist Interview

Today we are catching up with Danielle Jamie, one of the 7 talented and inspiring women from all walks of life who are hoping to be crowned Miss Universe Singapore 2023

Today we are catching up with Danielle Jamie, one of the 7 talented and inspiring women from all walks of life who are hoping to be crowned Miss Universe Singapore 2023 at the iconic Amber Lounge during the Singapore Grand Prix Weekend on 16 Sept with special guest Lil John.

So, Danielle why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?

I’m 27 years old this year. I come from a mixed heritage where my mum is Chinese and dad is Indian. I also own a jewellery brand where I hand make crystal and gemstone jewellery!

We all have motivations, mine usually around good coffee, but what was your key motivation for entering Miss Universe Australia?

Self-development. I wanted to push myself to do something out of my comfort zone. So when the opportunity came, I was really nervous but could not say no to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity like that. I believe in always living in the moment and taking whatever life throws at you… What’s the worst that could happen? 😉

As part of the program, you recently went on the National Finalist Trip to Vietnam at Furama Resort Denang, with the Australian contestants. What was the experience like?

The Vietnam trip was so much fun, to say the least! We got to mingle with the Australian team in the most gorgeous beachfront resort. It was the perfect backdrop for our photoshoots and content! The biggest takeaway was being coached by such experienced people in the industry.

What would you say was the highlight of your trip?

The highlight of the trip was being able to make new friends. I have a few girls I really connected with, and I absolutely loved being part of a team where everyone was just so happy and supportive of one another.

With everyone bringing their own unique and individual flair to the program, what is something that sets you apart from the other finalists?

I believe I’m not your average image of a “beauty queen” or model. And I love being that! I love being able to use this platform to show that beauty standards come in all shapes and sizes… And with my tattoos and piercings, I like the idea of “breaking the stigma” of what a beauty queen should look like.

Singapore is a multicultural society with people from many different backgrounds and walks of life. As Miss Universe Singapore, how would you use your platform to bring people together?

I would use my platform to promote unity and celebrate Singapore’s multiculturalism by organising cultural exchange events, engaging with local communities, advocating for educational programmes and facilitating cross-cultural friendships.

Tell us something you’re passionate about and why?

I am passionate about promoting diversity and inclusivity in beauty. I’ve seen so many young girls succumb to society’s beauty standards and measuring themselves up to models they see in beauty campaigns and advertisements, that they desperately try to change how they look. I believe everyone needs to be their own beauty standard. I wish to empower young women to believe in this. A confident woman is a powerful woman.

To finish up the interview we have a few quick questions

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Anywhere that’s near a beach and not too cold! Oh, and anywhere the food is spicy! :p

What would your perfect weekend look like?

My perfect weekend would be hanging out at home with my loved ones and my dogs, having a home-cooked meal and just bumming out… Or a little beach getaway will do too!

What makes you laugh out loud?

A night out with my girlfriends <3
