She is 21 years of age and stands tall at 174cm. Djana is a law student at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz. In her spare time she works as a model.
Dajana Dzinic succeeds Amina Dagi of Vorarlberg. On October 15, 2015, Miss Universe Austria 2015 Annika Grill was replaced by Dagi after Grill announced that she could not compete at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant due to being the Austrian representative for Miss World 2015. Amina competed at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant in Las Vegas on December 20, 2015, but did not place.
The best placement of Austria at Miss Universe was in 1997 when Eva Düringer Cavalli became the first runner-up.
