Birthed and nourished by the island of Jamaica, now 30 years of age, Eshiva Wright, “Positively Promotes the Caribbean” through her kindness, passion for learning, spirit of adventure and a curiosity of her heritage. Eshiva celebrates being awarded a Diploma in Teaching and Training this year. As a recently qualified teacher of learners aged 14-25, she sees herself continuing meaningful works and developing new skills for holistic person-centred approaches to education, play and change management. The sisterhood of pageantry is a time for growth of Grace (Goodwill, Regal Radiance, Accentuactivity, Community-focus and an Ebullient Excellence). Eshiva previously received a Higher National Diploma in Economics & Marketing from Heriot-Watt University, in Edinburgh and was previously crowned Miss Personality of Miss Caribbean UK 2017 and La Dame Creole 2017. Where she used this platform to fundraise, represent modest, natural beauty and highlight the uncertainty of the fast fashion industry. Experiences of visiting Ireland, Wales and living in remote parts of Scotland, Eshiva enjoys discovering new towns, cities, views, forests, lakes and sceneries with a flask full of rejuvenating herbal teas and a bottle of fresh-pressed juice. Outside of a research, teaching and learning environment, Eshiva takes pleasure in developing green skills, nurturing interests in modern methods of construction, volunteering and community engagement with her elders, peers and little loves. Eshiva creatively expresses through singing, spoken word artistry, cultivating sustainable fashion conversations and modelling for sustainable, artisanal brands. After the Miss Caribbean UK 2023 finals in October, Eshiva aims to spend time exploring the Caribbean islands, the vitality of the roots, fruits and shoots, discovering histories, listening to unheard voices, sharing new narratives, and working collaborative to find innovative ways to educate, empower and entertain on-screen and off-screen. In recognising we all experience, change and grow through challenges, Eshiva is proud to support this year’s nominated charity Mind, who make mental health a priority everyday through campaigning for changes, connection, respect, support and understanding for mental fitness. By taking heed of the inspirational works, advise and opportunities from regional organisations such as the Black South West Network, Eshiva is reminded to believe as one, we collectively drive racial equity in the UK society’s dimensions. Continuing to work on projects with charities such as ‘The Global Fund for Children’ who find, fund innovative leaders locally and globally, ‘centring children, youth and their communities as drivers of systemic change’, courage, learning, excellence, partnership, passion and inclusion may remain a priority. Proud to be Jamaican as we are ‘Out of Many, One People’. Eshiva says “Dream big, explore opportunities, bridge divides, and take risks to build bright sustainable futures”. All the Love. All the Light. Eshiva Wright
