"There is no secret to success.  It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure" - Colin Powell.  Last December 2017, I competed for the prestigious title of Miss California USA 2018, the state pageant to the national Miss USA pageant and Miss Universe. Two weeks following that weekend state pageant God opened an amazing door that I could not close.  I became the new reigning Miss Black California USA 2018 to represent the entire state of California at for the  national title of Miss Black USA 2019 to be held in Washington,DC in August 2018.

The Miss Black USA Organization empowers women to own their power and celebrates their unique talents, traits and beauty.  Miss Black USA defines her own standard of beauty and celebrates the whole women, mind, body and spirit, all shades of brown, hair texture and size.  Miss Black USA is a non-profit corporation headquartered in the state of Maryland. Their mission  is to provide a national stage for it's participants to showcase their unique talents and beauty and win scholarship opportunities. 


Scripture says we are to "run with patience (endurance, persistence) the race set before us, looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith..... Hebrews 12:1-3.  

I understand that my calling is great and the gifts inside me are to be nurtured and stirred up to fully manifest and walk in my purpose.  Between 2016 and 2017,  I’ve competed for both state and regional USA pageants under the Miss USA/Universe system and placed Top 10 for Miss Santa Monica USA 2017 receiving “Best Philanthropy” Award, Top 10 for Miss North Hollywood USA 2017, receiving “Best Entrepreneur” Award, Top 10 for Miss Malibu/Beverly Hills USA 2017 and 3rd Runner Up for Miss Laguna Beach USA 2017 receiving “Miss Photogenic” Award.


I am  so excited to represent the beautiful state of California in the upcoming national competition. I know that I will represent my  state community, friends and family with  beauty, style, intelligence and uniqueness that has been instilled in me by my parents.  Your kind donation and or sponsorship will help with many of the preparation cost incurred that include wardrobe, physical training, nutritional training, entry fees, photo shoots, travel expenses, marketing and promoting, etc.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I am a rising International R&B/Pop solo recording artist with a passion for maintaining artistic integrity as a musical entertainer, model, and philanthropist.  I currently attend the Christian college, Biola University, where she is studying Sociology and Psychology and plans to obtain her PhD in this field someday.

I Love MUSIC!  Music soothes the soul and  thanks to my father, my introduction to music started well before I entered the world. I was introduced to the melodic tunes of Jazz Great Myles Davis in utero and emerged as a small child with a great ear, voice, and interest in music.    By age 5, I performed my rendition of Beyoncé’s “Listen” in an elementary school talent show and thereafter continued to cultivate my craft by performing for various audiences in my community and beyond leading me to pursue a career in music now as a young adult. I aim to be the type of artist that creates music that transcends time with timeless elements like the contributions of artist I admire such as Aaliyah, Janet Jackson, Etta James and Beyoncé who have music that will continue to inspire the world for years to come.


I am an observant, sharp, quick individual with a high ability to help others understand the way the social world works and how it might be rehabilitated for the better. That being said, my key platform in the social world is “homelessness”.  I have been a resilient trailblazer and authentic volunteer for the non-profit organization The ASHÉ Foundation since I was eleven years old. The foundation is committed to changing the lives of the millions of women and children in African nations who have been orphaned by the devastating effects caused by HIV/AIDS, Wars and Poverty. Through the foundation’s efforts, I have help gather and distribute shoes, clothing, other necessities, and services to aid the disadvantaged and underprivileged women and children of African nations. In addition, through my work with the foundation, I have supported one of the most overpopulated homeless communities in Los Angeles, “Skid Row”.


My effort to end homelessness does not stop at The ASHÉ Foundation. Presently, I volunteer monthly preparing and serving meals to the homeless at the Santa Monica OPCC (Empowering People To Rebuild Their Lives) Samoshel Center. This program provides interim shelter and a broad range of programs to 70 men and women in separate living quarters. Within this program is a project called “The People Concern/Flyaway Homes”.  I have partnered with USC alumni Kevin Hirai (CEO/Founder of The People Concern/Flyaway Homes) to participate in the launch of the first of its kind housing in the City of Los Angeles for the solution to ending homelessness. This is a permanent supportive program building housing for the homeless as an economically viable, without the need for private donation or government funds using "Social Impact Equity”.  I am commitment to serving displaced, disadvantaged, underprivileged and underserved communities.


I love that California is a state strongly committed to serving displaced, disadvantaged, underprivileged and underserved communities. As the reigning 2018 Miss Black California USA I plan to bring dedication to helping others understand the way the social world works and how it might be rehabilitated for the better; illuminating and celebrating our leaders who rally the communities to create positive social change both domestically and internationally.

Thank you for you prayers and support!

Your Next Miss Black USA 2019!
Jazmine Graham
