Miss Jamaica Kyrstle Daley
“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself.” These are the words of IyanlaVanzant and are no doubt familiar to Miss Jamaica, Kyrstle Daley, as they come from one of her favourite authors.
The natural-born motivator functions as a motivational speaker, part-time speechwriter, public relations officer, and television host. She also works as a customer service representative and brand ambassador at Columbus Communications Jamaica Limited.
Her passion for youth and community has propelled her to become a mouthpiece for social change and unity on the island. She has organized devotional sessions for young women, done school interventions, and directed a mentorship programme.
Her inspiration comes from great women like the Honourable Lisa Hannah former Miss World 1993 and now Minister of Youth and Culture.
“Lisa is driven to change the socioeconomic conditions of the Jamaican youth and I believe that her efforts to do so are highly commendable.” Krystle stated.
The 25-year-old sees herself as successful entrepreneur in the business of Public Relations and a renowned media personality in the next five years and hopes to pursue a Masters of Arts in Media Management or Corporate Communications at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad.
