Velecia Robinson - Miss Portland Festival Queen 2017

One of the highlights of the JAMAICA 55 celebrations is the Miss Jamaica Festival Queen competition, which encourages the development of cultural awareness, talent and creativity in some of Jamaica’s most beautiful women between the ages of 18 and 25 years. It is the premier forum for intelligent, culturally aware and poised young ladies seeking a platform for their contribution to nation building and to be selected as local and international ambassadors for Jamaica. Get familiar with the queens weekly in the Flair Magazine.
