Jena Sims is more likely to be known as the hot girlfriend of United States professional golfer, Brooks Koepka and that might be fair. In the world of media coverage, the most attraction goes to the set of information that is most likely to capture the attention of listeners and readers. So even though Jena is an actress and former pageant queen, her career history so far does not feature anything that is strong enough to command attention on its own without the nature of her attention to another person. Regardless, she is her own person and has her own successes. The former Miss Teen USA pageant contestant’s life is detailed below.
Jena Sims’ Biography
Basic facts about her parents, such as their names or that of her siblings if she has any are not common knowledge, but we do know she was born on the 30th of December, 1988 in Winder, Georgia where she grew up attending and graduated from Winder-Barrow High School in 2007. After her graduation from high school, Jena attended Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee to study International Business. Despite maintaining her life as a student, Jena Sims had a brief career as a pageant contestant.
Supported by her parents, the young lady who has always been a beautiful child started competing in pageantry from the young age of 16. She entered the Miss Georgia Junior National Teenage competition in 2004, winning the competition and getting crowned Miss Georgia Junior National Teenager. She kept up to speed and the following year, she won the Miss Junior National Teenager title.
Sims’ pursuit of the top crown in pageantry continued at the Miss Georgia Teen USA 2007. The statewide competition was held in Newman on the 11th of November in 2006. She won the competition, surpassing her previous year finish at the 2006 event where she finished in the semi-finals. As is the tradition, she was crowned by the outgoing queen, Brittany Sharp, but the crown wasn’t the only responsibility Sharp passed onto Jena Sims, she was also tasked with representing Georgia in the Miss Teen USA 2007 pageant. Sharp had finished fourth runner-up shortly before Sims was crowned Miss Georgia.
Unfortunately, Sims was unable to follow up on the achievements of Sharp as she did not even place the pageant, becoming the first Miss Georgia not to place in the national competition since 2003. When the time came to relinquish the crown the following year to the latest queen, Sims equally said goodbye to the world of pageantry and never competed again. Even though Sims relinquished the pursuit of a diamond crown, she has accrued plaques for her humanitarian efforts since then. She dedicated herself to bringing pageantry to children who desire the opportunity but cannot follow their dreams because of various disadvantages.
