  • Motivation for entering Miss Jamaica World 2017?:
    Growing up, I saw beauty queens such as Terri-Karelle, Sara Lawrence, and Lisa Hanna who used their beauty to impact young girls and I always believed that maybe one day I could do the same. I’ve tried before, and though I did not get the result I wanted I saw how a pageant not only impacted me, but also young women with whom I’ve interacted with. I want to do more, God Gave me this vessel and the opportunities to do it, so why not?
  • What is your most unusual experience?:
    Being in a pageant. You go in one way, and come out another, no matter the result.
  • Describe your proudest/happiest moment:
    When you have spent four years, studying, crying, giving up and all the drama that comes with tertiary education, and you walk up on that stage to collect a piece of paper? There is no prouder moment that I have had, than when I got my degree.
