WICKHAM’S CAY II, Tortola, VI – Miss BVI 2014 Jaynene Jno Lewis is not allowing herself to be distracted by the naysayers as she moves full pace ahead in her reign and is continuing to embark on initiatives to positively impact youths of the Virgin Islands.

Even prior to her being crowned queen of the pageant held during the Emancipation Festival season Ms Jno Lewis has been a familiar face, voice and character among the facilitators and Youth of the East End/Long Look Youth Empowerment Programme (YEP) and the Project Lion Heart, a programme for young men.

While she continues on those beats she has approached the Rotary Club of Tortola for their support of a new initiative that will be unique. It seeks to raise funds to kick-start her recognition programme. She is currently organizing a 5km run/walk, not of the usual style but one with a difference.

Persons will run or walk and have a party/social gathering at several strategic points along a significant stretch of Tortola’s main road. “There will be a number of bands at strategic points along the route, not on trucks but set up stationary,” she told Rotarians at The Moorings on Thursday August 28, 2014.

The plans for this event are still in the infancy stages as several details are being formalized. This will be the event that will see her collaborating strongly with a number of institutions and agencies including the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF).

Part of her mission will be to influence a behaviour change among youths especially when it comes to their mode of dress, something she feels strongly about as the way one dresses sends various messages.

“I am looking forward to working with the armed forces, and also the police force here in the BVI and, in addition, with LIME, to educate on provocative clothing and why we should let our young people do better at wearing clothing,” Jno-Lewis said.

She firmly believes that tackling the issue of self esteem is key in the process as in most cases it has a lot to do with how one presents himself/herself in society. She will also be making representation on domestic and other forms of violence prevalent in communities.

    Miss BVI make sure that next time you are in the media, you should get your weave re-done and make up should be on point. If u representing the BVI you should look presentable at all times. (You always quick to judge other people's looks and you can't turn a mirror on yourself) ..well sah!

    This young lady can’t be saying she’s going to help the youths in the BVI about the way they dress, only because she was running in this pageant she’s trying to change her style of dressing nevertheless she don’t carry herself appropriate when she’s going out to events or just seeing walking the road, so please stop putting on this false image to the BVI community and be yourself I’m not hating but this is the truth.

    Jaynene, be the change you wish to see. The way you carry yourself in public when you're not on Ms. BVI duty is appalling. I'm not saying that you should be 'flawless' everyday, but at least you can put more effort in the clothes you wear when you leave the house. And please, get rid of the contacts!... Enjoy your reign.
