I Entered Miss Universe Jamaica because it is a great platform for me to establish myself as an entrepreneur and as such influence and motivate other young adults alike. The Miss Universe Jamaica platform gives me the opportunity to meet and converse with some of the most important people within the diverse fields of arts, diplomacy and economics, to name a few, which gives me the opportunity to be more knowledgeable within those fields and learn from these leading enterprisers. The Miss Universe Jamaica Pageant also gives me an opportunity to begin one of the many dreams of mine which is to impact. Revitalize and rejuvenate the manufacturing of authentic Jamaican crafts within the craft markets in Jamaica, which I see is being dominated by foreign manufacturers, which is the essence of Exotichild Ltd. I have a passion for contributing to the development of Jamaica and its people, and the steps I take are with the development of my companies; to provide job opportunities, training and overall development of the Jamaican people, be an ambassador for Jamaica and represent certain professions, activities and fields internationally towards uplifting, developing and influencing the great change our country needs to be a great nation.
My most unusual experience was when I was in Morocco with a Girlfriend sitting at a pub waiting for another friend. We were approached by a male waiter who asked us twice within a five minute gap if we were ready to order, to which we responded, “No, we are waiting on our friend”. He returned for a third time but this time demanded that we leave because we did not want to purchase anything to eat or drink…We calmly replied that we will order shortly and again he insisted that we leave immediately. We then asked to speak with the manager of the establishment to which he replied, “I am the manager and you need to leave NOW!” We knew we were being treated like this because we were women and in Morocco women are not always treated fairly. I’m happy to say that in the end we spoke with the actual manager who allowed us to stay until our friend showed up fashionably late! :)
My proudest moment was when I opened my first business Exotichild Ltd.
