“I was very humbled to have won because I was definitely not cut out to be a “beauty queen” those of you who have followed my life knew I was a black belt karate instructor, I hosted Rappin on television former head girl and I was a student advocate. So putting on a swimsuit and walking on stage was not something I wanted to do… But i saw the competition as a way to touch and feel Jamaica and our people. It was also a way to speak on issues. I went on to win five sectional prizes that night and well the rest is history as they would say…I won Miss World,” she continued.
In her caption, Hanna explained that she always wanted to be a politician and that she has moved on to follow her dream.
“I always wanted to be a politician and I have moved to follow my dream but that does not take away my memories and the impact that winning and being Miss Jamaica and Miss World have had on my life. I can’t change that part of my life and give thanks for it,” Hanna concluded.
As a young girl, she worked as a volunteer with the World Hunger Project and the JAMAL programme in Jamaica alerting people to the global status of hunger, starvation and the local plight of adult illiteracy.
She also worked in conjunction with UNICEF to spearhead the Jamaican candlelight vigils to launch the International Convention on the Rights of the Child.
She continued her community service throughout her young life and blazed a trail as Head Girl at The Queen’s School, Television co-host for one of Jamaica’s most popular television programmes, Rappin, and became one of the youngest United Nations Goodwill Ambassadors ever to be appointed by the United Nations Development Programme in Jamaica.
Lisa Hanna achieved her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in communications from the University of the West Indies in 1998 and 2000 respectively.
Through her studies she was able to do a technical transfer to the Technology University Malaysia and the University of Singapore to study the impact of Information Technology on developing economies.
More recently, Lisa has worked extensively in project management, media, marketing and public relations both locally and internationally.
In conjunction with her corporate responsibilities, she continues to focus heavily on community service and quietly works in various Jamaican inner city communities.
