Ngā mihi nui kia koutou katoa. Ko Hayley Robinson tōku ingoa, nō Papaioea au.
I love my job as an intelligence analyst for New Zealand Police, interpreting crash and crime data. My job gives me the opportunity to prevent further harm from occurring and enables safer communities, which is something I am extremely passionate about. Outside of my immediate role I am a recruitment lead, focussing on encouraging and supporting women to join New Zealand Police. I also enjoy engaging with the community through local voluntary events and being the page administer for our Police social media accounts.

My family tell me I have a pageant addiction. For me, pageants provide a platform to develop as a person and meet new inspiring women. Something really valuable I have learnt from pageants is to be fearlessly authentic and natural; surrounded by the glitz and glam it is so important to remember to let your inner natural beauty shine through.

I have been fearlessly authentic in my support for Miss World NZ’s chosen charity Annies Lifeline. Every time I publicly announce living with depression and anxiety, it is a terrifying yet empowering experience. In doing so my aim is to encourage others to talk about mental health issues and not let the fear and stigma make people suffer in silence or feel disabled. I am very lucky to have a supporting, patient and understanding family. My family is my greatest value.

I love to do Ballroom and Latin dancing. Last year was my first year competing at a registered level and to conclude my year I made the finals at Nationals. Other physical activities I enjoy are boxing and outdoor activities such as hiking and biking.
