Do you believe that your academic and professional credentials significantly matter in the competition?
“Yes. I believe so. Beauty pageants today have evolved into showcasing ladies with not just pretty faces and nice bodies. They have become a platform for women of substance. I know that each of the girls I’m with have something to show and stories to tell. And each one of us possesses something that inspires other people.

What can we expect from Jerelleen between now and March 18?
“Between now and March 18, expect a Jerelleen with the greater fire to win a crown. I started from nothing and throughout my journey, so far, I have seen my supporters and loved ones who have given so much for me and believed in me. It goes both ways that when I receive messages from people on how much i inspire them, I get inspired myself. This one is for all the individuals who continue to have faith in me.”
