Meet Princess Jackson!

A kind heart, a beautiful spirit + a focused mind are the ingredients of young activist + actress Princess Jackson! This dynamic young lady birthed “Sock Out Poverty” because of her fondness for socks and seeing the need in the community. Princess came up with the idea to raise donations which would cover the needs of men, women, boys, and girls who were in need of a new pair(s) of socks. Her goal is to reduce poverty and provide socks for the less fortunate, therefore Socking Out Poverty one step at a time! Princess has continuously spread the word about her message on bettering the community which caught the ear of Steve Harvey where she was featured on his show!

Let’s get to know Princess a little bit better…

Sock Out Poverty, Inc. is an influential non-profit  that provides socks, clothing and other material goods to men, women, boys, and girls that are in need. What made you want to create this powerful organization?

Four years ago while I was on a blanket drive with my mom, I noticed the homeless had blankets, cardboard, shoes with holes in them, but they didn’t have socks to keep them warm. I wanted to give new socks to the less fortunate so Sock Out Poverty, INC was created.

You also share your gifts through acting, what do you love about the acting world? 

I love acting because it allows me to play in different roles. Improv (acting with no scripts) is my favorite. I able to pretend to be some someone else and have fun doing it.

Being young and having responsibilities can sometimes get to be a bit overwhelming, how do you regroup and motivate yourself when you’re feeling a little defeated?

I’m active in acting, modeling, charity events, and school. I stay focus and have a schedule I go by so I will be able to accomplish my goals. I also take 30 minutes each day to listen to something positive and motivating.

The possibilities are limitless for your future! What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be an actress and make music.

We tend to pull characteristics from others in our lives or from people we admire, who inspires you and why?

My mother and music artist ‘I AM JUSTIFIED’ inspires me. My mother inspires as I watch her give to others, it teaches me not to be selfish and give to others too. I AM JUSTIFIED inspires me because he always focus on positivity even when negativity is around. This motivates me to stay positive.

We are all about empowerment, what does EMPOWERMENT mean to you?

Empowerment means to be strong. My goal is when others see my strength, it will encourage others to be strong too.
