  Ambitious, intelligent, beautiful, aspirational and exciting are just some of the adjectives used to describe Gemma Feare the reigning Miss Jamaica Uk, who arrived in the island on February 3rd, 2013 for a month long visit as a part of her cultural involvement under the theme of "Inspiring Today's Youth - To Aim For Excellence" in an attempt at strengthening the connection between Jamaicans right across the Diaspora .


Gemma recently took home the crown for the 2012-2013 pageant on December 1st, 2012 in
London. She was the stand out favourite with both the crowd and judging panel. Her speech,
poise and intelligence shone above all the other contestants throughout the competition. She will
use this platform to highlight the positive initiatives she endorses and hopes to influence others
with her drive, vision and tenacity.

At just 21, she has lived an enviable and animated life and has travelled the world, won awards
and inspired many people along her short but fruitful journey thus far. Gemma believe's that her
positive attitude and own personal life experiences, which include surviving the 2005 Thailand
Tsunami, have helped shaped her character today.

In 2012 Gemma achieved a First Class Honours in Business Management with Commercial
Law from the University of Westminster and plans to attend Cass Business School in 2013 to
study for a Masters in Management, incorporating the Entrepreneurship pathway.

Despite having no previous acting experience, Gemma's teacher's’ recognised her potential at
age 10 and she was later encouraged to apply for the Drama Scholarship Award which she won
over hundreds of students.

She then went on to tour Shakespeare's Twelfth Night across Canada with the Running Torch
Theatre Company performing at a number of schools, theatres and community centres in 2007.
Upon her return, she began acting in performances and festivals across the UK; including the
renowned National Student Drama Festival in 2009.

In 2011, Gemma became an Actor and Member of the National Youth Theatre of Great
Britain which gave her the opportunity to work with some of the finest actors and tutors in the
business and gained valuable skills and knowledge. She also became a Member of Battersea
Arts Centre in the same year and achieved the London Academy of Music and Dramatic
Arts' (LAMDA) Communication Award.
