Why I want to be a JET Beauty: While reading JET Magazine as a child, I was always so inspired by all the beautiful Black people featured within its pages. To me, the JET Beauty specifically represented a celebration of beauty in all forms. It’s important to celebrate all body types and shades and as a brown-skinned woman with curves, I feel it is especially important to see positive representations of oneself in the media. I have always been grateful for the way that JET portrays Black women. I hope to inspire young Black girls to embrace all of their features and love the skin they’re in.
