Why I want to be a JET Beauty: I want to be a JET Beauty because I feel like I represent what the title stands for: empowering women of color and helping to pave the way for all minority women. Everyday, I push myself to be a role model to all women and to do whatever possible to encourage other women of color to be proud of all the beautiful shades of brown skin that God has blessed us with.
