Updated: Nov 26, 2020
Natural beauty is something that everyone has, but I’s one thing that many women of color of bringing to the forefront utilizing social media. With emphasis on loving and embracing oneself as well as working what your mama gave you. We are seeing more beautiful women taking control of the narrative and showing the world the black is beautiful. And that black hair is to be celebrated. Jennifer Jackson, Haitian Hair and Beauty YouTube Video Creator does just that in her own creative way.
Getting her YouTube started by creating videos in a small, dimly lit bathroom hoping to encourage others to embrace their hair, has now turned into a large creative platform that women world-wide can use as not only a resource to learn about their natural hair and beauty, but also a place to be her authentic self. “When I first started on YouTube, I didn’t know many other Haitian women. However, since my social media following has increased - especially with Instagram - I love being able to interact with other Haitian creatives. We have formed a little community away from home, and I appreciate that we have so much in common. We aren’t afraid to share our experiences, discuss our upbringings, and uplift one another. I love shedding light on my culture and sharing my origin with the world. I have always been proud of my country and will continue to show who I am and where I`m from on my social media accounts!” Jackson has utilized her platform to help other Haitians, using her platform to help fund equipment for Haitian doctors amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
