Hilarious, outspoken, beauty goddess Jackie Aima has made history by being awarded the NAACP Image Awards’ YouTuber of The Year award.
What is NAACP?
The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People) is an American organisation that works towards improving the lives and opportunities of black Americans and Americans of colour. This is the first time that they’ve included YouTube as a cateory in it’s annual awards and they couldn’t think of anyone better than the fabolous Jackie.
Who is Jackie?
Jackie is a youtube vet having started her channel over a decade go. She started her channel with the view of trying to give girls that looked like her a place on the internet to go for beauty tips and adive. In her own words she’s “Changing the standard of beauty, one video at a time.”.
We think it’s about time YouTube is taken more seriously on it’s impact in the world and how it’s content creators do and are using their power to help change the usual stereotypes and perceptions.
