VOCALIST, MODEL

My passion for music and pageants can be traced back to my school days when I became a member of my school's music club and entered my first pageant to become the school's queen. I grew up in the community of Barking Lodge in St. Thomas but my family home is now in Stokes Hall, Golden Grove, St. Thomas. I am a past student of the St. Thomas Technical High School where I was an active member of the school's choir, dance club, red cross club, cadet among other clubs.

 

I am an adventurous individual who loves to travel and try new things. I have achieved a goal of becoming a Hotel Manager at age 25 and worked in the parish of Portland. I have always been outstanding in the areas of pageantry and entertainment, hence have made numerous audio, televised and print media appearances and entered a wide variety of competitions.

 

I always aim to motivate other plus size women to build self-confidence and show others that whatever the petite women can do... plus size women can do too and in some cases even better. This is my reason for auditioning as a plus size model for the first time in this competition. Despite discriminations faced due to the fact that i am plus sized, my determination, confidence and outstanding musical talent always keeps me among the top performers in every competition I have entered. I have been awarded with many achievements:

 

* 2020, Silver and Bronze Medals in WCOPA 2020 Virtual Competition.

Pageants have afforded me some financial scholarship which enabled me to complete my studies in the field of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the multidisciplinary College of Agriculture Science and Education where I graduated with the President's Award for Most Outstanding Academic Achievements in 2015. I am:

 

* Former employee of the Ministry of Health in the capacity of Data Entry Clerk

 

* Former employee  as an Entertainer at Hah-R-Mony Entertainment Montego Bay

 

* Entrepreneur who owns Faith Pin To Anchor

 Variety Supplies business.

* Vocalist with House of Prestige Funeral Home

 

* Former employee at Grace Kennedy Limited 

 

* Lead and Harmony Vocalist with Riddim 2000

  Band.

 

* National Pageant Coach.

 

I am guided by the philosophy "Never under-estimate the power and strength of a true black woman."

 

I enjoy singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, socializing, organizing events and excursions, baking, volunteering, engaging in pageant model activities and spending time with my one and only child, my daughter Faith Wright.

 

I look forward to representing Jamaica in an outstanding way at WCOPA 2022, taking home world titles and achieve my goals of motivating women, securing scholarships and or contracts and becoming a renowned world star.
