Shayna Jamison graduated from Hampton University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. Ms. Jamison is the reigning Miss Black Virginia USA 2014, and will compete for the national title of Miss Black USA 2014 on August 10, 2014 at the University of the District of Columbia Performing Arts Theater.
Her platform, “Aspire to Greatness,” runs directly in line with Hampton’s mission to provide an “Education for Life” to its students. Ms. Jamison uses her platform to promote and teach teens the importance of great health, career planning, counseling, and tutoring for extraordinary performance in school. She is passionate about her platform because she has experienced the principles she promotes. She believes that “In order to help others, you must have gone through the experience too.”
Let’s come together and support our fellow Hamptonian, as she continues to raise funds and prep for the Miss Black USA 2014 pageant. For more information on how to support Shayna, visit www.gofundme.com/MissBlackVirginia2014 and www.facebook.com/MissBlackVirginia2014.
