April Jackson’s Bio
Raised by an entrepreneurial father and self-made man with interests in shipping, remittances, and property, who built his business with a strong work ethic and tenacity, 26-year-old entrepreneur April Jackson was a champion of Jamaica long before she was crowned a beauty queen and Miss Jamaica Universe in 2008.
April’s founding of one of Brixton’s most desirable eateries, Three Little Birds, since appearing on BBC’s Apprentice is not unexpected. Boasting delectable Jamaican cuisine small-plates style, rum-based cocktails and an array of the island’s condiments, coffee, and clothing, it is far from a typical Caribbean haunt.
Well known on the social scene for her friendships with Jamaica’s jet-set (Usain Bolt and Shaggy are pals) April’s model past is only one facet of the entrepreneur’s personality. Founder of foodie blog TheYummytruth.com in which April shares her food adventures and Jamaican inspired recipes, at just 26 April is the foodie entrepreneur to watch – and determined to make Jamaican food a firm fixture on the UK palate.
