One of our favourite beauty vloggers, Jackie Aina took home her first NAACP Award last night, as YouTuber of the year at the 49th edition of the award show.
National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People is known for honouring outstanding contributions in art, music, literature, television and entertainment collaborated with Google and created this brand new category this year which makes Jackie Aina the very first recipient of the award in history.
The L.A based Nigerian speaks up on issues surrounding race, representation and the need for diversity in the beauty industry through her channel which has earned her the recognition she has at the moment.
With almost 2 million YouTube subscribers and a strong voice of reason, Jackie totally deserves this award and we congratulate her.
