[Sharingbuttons]The newly crowned Festival Queen Ackera Gowie spoke about her plans for her 1 year reign recently. She has already done a soft launch for her Eco- Money Project and children made pencil cases with discarded plastic bottles.
The Festival Queen has always been concerned about the blocked drains, littered beaches and other problems caused by plastic pollution and she is determined to make a difference in the way plastic waste is discarded in Jamaica.
The Queen even plans to provide jobs for the young people while they do more to protect the environment, with her Eco-Money Project. She plans to encourage the youth to use more non-biodegradable items to make new reusable items.
She will be running her own personal development and youth consultation organization as she works with schools. St Mary High, Mary Mount High, Port Maria High and St Mary Technical are some of the schools she plans to start working with in the near future.
She also want to encourage demotivated youth, so they will understand that they can still find a way to achieve after they have been unsuccessful in their endeavors.
Gowie won $455,000.00, as a cash prize and she was the most poised and most culturally aware, so she won those sectional prizes as well at the 2018 staging of the Miss Jamaica Festival Queen Competition.
