After winning Miss Jamaica Universe 2017, Bennett represented Jamaica at the Miss Universe 2017 pageant, where she was the 2nd runner up. All through the competition, Bennett stole the show with her natural Afro and beautiful smile, causing influential people like American filmmaker Shonda Rhimes to come out and request a doll of her to be made to motivate young girls of colour to love themselves.
