ON HER MIND: Kaci Fennell reflects on her journey and sets her sights on more amazing triumphs

AT FIRST BITE: Kaci is happiest spending time in the kitchen and eating well.

I believe in divine order. It’s a key principle that guides my life and it has been steering me from one success to another – the latest being chosen to serve as foodie ambassador for Yello Media for this year’s Jamaica Food and Drink Festival.

It was an amazing experience to see how much the festival has grown over the years. It’s something for us to be proud of as Jamaicans. Yello and I had a remarkable partnership, which made the experience even better, and I’m not just saying that because I got to sample all the amazing food. The festival is something that the food industry needs, and I’m looking forward to its growth and supporting in any way I can.

I love food. I love to cook. I enjoy spending time in the kitchen. Cooking is one of my favourite hobbies, next to swimming and having a good workout. Nothing helps me to feel more relaxed. I need all the stress relief I can get because I’m about to make some significant steps towards achieving my career goals. I have a big announcement to make soon, and it’s about my “next job.” I can’t give too much away but it has to do with the media, and it’s a gig I’m very, very excited about.

For the most part, things have been going great since I won Miss Jamaica Universe and placed in the top five at the Miss Universe pageant. In addition to working with Yello, I’ve worked with KFC, Ting and Ocean Spray, and I’m hoping there’s lots more to come. After Miss Universe, I decided to take a year or two off to really centre myself and think about what I want to do next.

And a lot has happened since then. I got married and worked with a few charities, doing work that is important to me. I travelled a lot representing the brands and for personal enjoyment. When I was ambassador for Ting, I remember visiting London, Puerto Rico and New York, and it was just so interesting to see how people responded to Brand Jamaica. They can’t get enough. When you leave Jamaica, it really makes you miss home and appreciate your country that much more. I’m looking forward to representing the country more internationally and further broadening my horizons. 

There’s so much I want to accomplish in the next five to ten years. Hopefully, by that time I would have established and developed a successful food business. I’m also looking forward to working in the media as a hostess. I want to become a mom. 

I want so much out of life. I’m happy and I’m excited about what the future holds. But, like I said, I believe in divine order. Whatever happens for me, I want it to be in alignment with the Universe. – As told to TALLAWAH Magazine
