April Jackson - Miss Jamaica UK 2006 - not only beautiful, but exceptionally driven
By Christopher “Icey Jace” Campbell
After traveling half the globe as a delegate of Jamaica living in England, April Jackson, the reigning Miss Jamaica UK will this year relinquish her title as queen.
April who won the title back in 2006 is best described as a vibrant young beauty that is very much in touch with her local heritage. At 18, April, who incidentally was born in April, is an exceptional communicator and a grounded individual that has a positive outlook on life. This former student of the Hillel Academy was valedictorian of her graduating class, and a recipient of several distinguished awards.
Not a big fan of beauty pageants April sites entering Miss Jamaica UK as a way of changing the stigma attached to Jamaicans. I entered Miss Jamaica UK because I actually have a deep love for Jamaica, I've lived here for eight years and I come back every few months because I do consider it home and honestly I just wanted to portray Jamaicans in a positive light because I do feel that although I find the rest of the world has that deep love for Jamaica, there's also a lot of negative stereotypes that I wanted to kinda change, she explains to OutAroad.com.
