Representing for All the Afro-Queens

By now you have probably seen this beauty’s face populating your social feed.

She is the lovely Miss Davina Bennett, second runner up in this year’s Miss Universe pageant. This fabulous 21- year-old represented Jamaica, and in her very own words, stood “as the very first afro-queen to have made it thus far.” Bennett, also brought light to a meaningful platform, DBF, which she founded in order to help the deaf community.

In all her glory, Miss Jamaica was widely embraced over the internet following the pageant. The hashtag #MissJamaicaShouldHaveWon even circulated Instagram and Twitter. The reason behind the uproar? Yes, because she’s intelligent, beautiful and graceful, but also because representation matters. 

Davina recently shared a post that a little girl, Zaria Amiyah (@zariasdream) tagged her in, expressing her gratitude. It read:

Dear Miss Jamaica @davina_bennett_ Thank you for being you and reminding me how beautiful my skin is! Thank you for representing and embracing a culture and skin tone that others see as too different!!! Thank you for boosting my confidence as I see someone like me walk with such beauty and grace! Thank you for being a role model for a little chocolate girl like me! I used to think I wasn’t pretty without long hair, but mommy showed me different and you made it even more clear. I am NOT defined by my hair or my skin tone but by how I carry myself when I walk in the room! And although I’m from Georgia not Jamaica you still represented for little girls like me! You rock!


@zariasdream

It is monumental to all of the ladies out there with brown skin and afro-textured hair to see someone with features like theirs being presented to the world as beautiful - something that hasn’t been as celebrated in the past. Little black girls at home can look at their TV screens and know that they can too, and we at EDEN feel that that kind of empowerment is both beautiful and essential. It must be celebrated and continued!

 

Congratulations Davina!
