For a young enterprising fashion designer, Jacqueline Onasis one must use the God-given talent and skills to succeed in any endeavour.

She is a graduate of Accra Technical University (2019), after her SHS at Olla Girls (2015).

She did her National Service at Parliament House and learnt a lot, aside from meeting a lot of people.

She decided to follow her passion in sports and fashion and landed in the boxing ring, not as a boxer or referee or coach or MC, but as a card girl who catwalks and shows the number of rounds gone or remaining during bouts.

She now works in partnership with the Ghana Boxing Authority and promoters to zest up boxing shows.

“I love boxing, my favourite boxer is Azumah Nelson. I have not seen him box really before, but I watched him on TV and I can say he is a living legend and very disciplined.

“My first job in the ring was Bastie Samir versus Bukom Banku on Box Office Promotion, and I think I did it well and loved it, since then it has continued to the last one on May Day,” she said.

Miss Jacqueline Onasis advised young ladies to be creative and work hard by using what they have.

“Know yourself and work towards it, there is no end in learning new stuff” she stressed.
