Indiana native crowned Miss N.J.
Jenna Drew, originally of Indiana, was recently crowned Miss New Jersey International 2013.
She represented Hoboken, N.J., in the platform-based pageant held in East Brunswick, N.J.
She is a 2005 graduate of Indiana Area Senior High School and the daughter of Samuel and Denise Drew, of White Township.
Drew will spend the year as Miss New Jersey International promoting her platform of Celiac Disease Awareness. One in 133 people have celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disorder that keeps a person from digesting gluten.
Gluten is in wheat, rye and barley and commonly found in foods like pizza, pastas, cookies, cakes and other processed foods.
As Miss New Jersey International, she will work to raise awareness for celiac disease because living with undiagnosed celiac disease can lead to other autoimmune disorders, infertility, cancer and other health issues.
Drew was named a Celiac Awareness All-Star by the National Foundation of Celiac Awareness.
From July 22 to 28, Drew will compete for the title of Miss International in Chicago, Ill. She also volunteers with the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women.
