Perhaps it sounds a bit too clichéd to describe certain women as “beauty with brains”, but when you find a woman like Faith Jenkins who has won world-class beauty contests and graduated as the best in her legal class, you can safely say that you are dealing with a very special lady. Faith Jenkins is definitely the perfect fusion of elegance, balance, and a healthy intellect.
Faith was born in Shreveport, Louisiana on November 25, 1977, and attended C. E. Byrd High School in Shreveport. After graduating high school, Faith went to the Technical University of Louisiana where she earned a bachelor’s degree in political science.
After her first degree, Faith’s journey into pageantry began when she entered a contest and won the Miss Louisiana Tech Crown. She was the first African-American woman to win the university crown. Inspired by her triumph, she fought for the Miss Louisiana crown in 2000 and became the first African-American woman to win it.
Her victory in the state gave her a ticket to represent Louisiana in the Miss America beauty pageant the following year. In Miss America 2001, Faith Jenkins took first-second place.
She holds the record as the only candidate in the history of the Miss America pageant to receive all three of the following awards: Swimsuit, Talent, and the National Quality of Life Charity Award for her volunteer work.
Now firmly anchored in the national consciousness, Faith took the platform to address issues that are close to her heart. During her reign, she traveled extensively and engaged student organizations, business leaders, captains of industry, and political interest groups to raise awareness of the plight of the younger generation.
A national figure and role model, Faith was a frequent visitor to prisons and youth centers, encouraging inmates with her personal history of determination and determination.
Her travels and engagements as a beauty queen helped her to develop a passion for the legal profession – a passion she would later express more fully through the legal profession.
With the intention of pursuing her dream of becoming a lawyer, she enrolled at Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she earned her Juris Doctorate.
On May 29, 2014, it was announced that Faith Jenkins would host her own nationally syndicated arbitration-based court show. The show was scheduled to debut on September 22, 2014. The Judge Faith Show is co-produced by Hank Cohen and Katty Sapp and directed by James Ditchfield.
It is still a bit interesting how a media personality who is constantly in the spotlight can protect himself from intrusive publicity. During her entire time as a beauty queen and trial lawyer, not a single word from Faith’s personal life has appeared in the media. There is no record of her immediate family or her childhood.
Faith Jenkins is not married. There’s no record of her having any relationship. No scandals, no negative publicity. She has managed to maintain a squeaky-clean public profile.
