My life’s ambition is to do all that I can with all that I have been given.
What are your five-year goals?:
To start a family
To grow my business
To own my own home
To have completed my Masters in Applied Psychology
To have visited all of my top three locations to travel
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.
