Everyone Is Proud Of Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett For Wearing Her Natural Hair

 

It was quite unfortunate Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett lose out the 2017 Miss Universe trophy to South African Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, but in the eyes of women of color, she was neither a loser but a great source of inspiration for wearing her afro natural hair.

 In recent years, Natural hair, as you know has a been a topical issue, especially in the workplaces. Black women get discriminated in the West and some even get fined or banned because according to employers, natural ‘dos often do not conform to traditional notions of beauty. But when Davina Bennett hit the world-renowned stage and proudly paraded herself in front of the whole world in a thick, full blowout afro during the 2017 Miss Universe pageantry, it was a revolution, a good omen, a beacon of hope, and confidence booster to the women who have been chastised for embracing their beautiful natural hair.

Bennett was actually the second runner-up but that did not deter her from demonstrating some kind of self-love. “I stand as the first afro queen to have made it thus far,” she wrote on Instagram. “I represented my little island and I received allll the love one could possibly wish for…. THANK YOU!!!”

Since then, women of color from North to South, East to West have been storming Twitter to drop lofty comments on the 23-year-old model and philanthropist for defying the irrational beauty standards.

Good job!
