Lawnda Jackson to represent Jamaica at Miss Supranational 2021

25 Jun 2021 | Camilla Suarez

The organization of Miss Jamaica Supranational announced Lawnda Jackson as the new Miss Supranational Jamaica 2021 during a virtual event that was held in January. She will now represent Jamaica at Miss Supranational 2021, scheduled to take place in August in Poland. She succeeds Miss Supranational Jamaica 2019 Kimberly Dawkins for the title. Kimberly represented Jamaica at Miss Supranational 2019 where she was placed in the Top 30 at the end of the event.

Hailing from Westmoreland, Lawnda is 28-years-old and is a registered nurse who migrated to Miami, Florida, at the age of eight with her aunt, Iona Myrie, with hopes of securing better educational opportunities.



She developed a passion for pageants after she became Miss Jamaica Florida in 2015 and since then has been using pageants to showcase her philanthropic efforts through her charity, ‘Women Can Win’. "It was just not about beauty for me. It was more about using it to inspire young women and letting them know that there are things out there that they can do and accomplish if they just try and put their minds to it. It's not just about your pretty face. There is so much more you can do with your voice, with your talent, by just being inspired to help someone out," she said.

Miss Supranational Jamaica 2021 Lawnda Jackson’s court includes:

First runner-up: Nichole Henry

Second runner-up: Dailia Harvey

Third runner-up: Chantel Gray

Fourth runner-up: Natassia Reid

The diva’s foundation, ‘Women Can Win’ is aimed at educating young ladies about sexually transmitted diseases and how to protect themselves from getting or being exposed to them. She wants to be able to mentor young women across the country, encouraging them to strive for greatness. She was named first runner-up for Miss Supranational Jamaica 2019 and worked hard to win the title this year because she is passionate about not only representing Jamaica at international competitions but also about making the most of it.

Lawnda mentioned, "I've worked so hard to be able to get this platform to be able to represent my country, and I'm very proud of it. It was not something that just happened overnight, and that is one of the reasons I am so proud to represent Jamaica so that I can be able to encourage young ladies like myself that you are capable of doing it." She also won the Miss Humanitarian sectional prize.

The beauty queen is extremely thankful for the opportunities that came along her journey and helped her to be confident, strong, and believe in herself. Miss Supranational 2021 will be Lwanda Jackson’s last beauty pageant because of the age restriction and she stated, "As I compete in my very last international pageant, I just want to give it my all. Despite all the obstacles that I and my team have faced, we are still pressing on. Sometimes is not how we begin the race but how we end."

The stunning beauty is now preparing herself for the competition and is assured that she will perform her best to make Jamaica proud. She is strong, beautiful, determined, and experienced, which is surely going to help her in the competition.

Queen, congratulations!
