The Facebook post of Miss Grand International read, “Raised mostly by her Dad until her step mum came along, Teau grew up in a mechanics workshop when not at Avarua School. She can speak Maori - something she is very proud of. Together with her Dad, Teau owns a small building company here in Rarotonga. Her love of construction, home design and renovation grew from when she started working part-time at Bunnings whilst attending Westlake Girls High School in Auckland. Teau will represent the Cook Islands at our 6th edition of Miss Grand International beauty pageant to be held in Myanmar during this 5-25 October. Congratulations and officially welcome to our Grand Family!”
