The 26-year-old former Miss Jamaica Universe is the owner of a boutique in Kingston and also founded a successful event management company and a children’s charity.
During her audition , Jackson she drew comparisons on being involved in the pageant and appearing on the Apprentice.
She said: “I was Miss Jamaica Universe. Clearly that makes me special. There is only a finite number of us.
“My friend was like you were Miss Jamaica 2008 – we are now in 2015. I was like honey, once Miss Jamaica always Miss Jamaica.”
“I think there’s a lot of similarities between being Miss Jamaica and being on the Apprentice. I appreciate that the Apprentice isn’t about a beauty pageant,” she said.
When asked about her chances of winning, she stated:
“I’m Jamaican. We come first – we win on the track and we will win in the boardroom.”
