Jetset Magazine, “the premier affluent lifestyle print and online resource,” has grown in popularity and prestige in the thirteen-plus years since its founding. A lively compendium of all the best in life from real estate to high-end lifestyle products, the publication is not merely a glossy monthly display of luxury for luxury’s sake, it boasts articles about prudent philanthropy and contributors such as Robert Kiyosaki, the highly regarded author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, and Dr. John Demartini.
Jetset Magazine also hosts an annual cover model competition that the publication uses to bring attention to women who are on the cusp of being discovered by the greater public, like the current title-holder. The winner will be awarded $50,000, the opportunity to appear on a future cover of Jetset Magazine, and enjoy high-profile events. The competition raises funds for the Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation, a major children’s cancer charity that provides funds for research as well as financial assistance for families with children with cancer across the nation.
Our own Meghan Jenkins was nominated for this competition, and readers of this website are invited to vote for her each day. Meghan is a writer, performer, podcaster, Instagram influencer, music composer and producer, painter, and set designer. She is also a self-starter who in 2020 continued to assemble a team of writers and performers for a variety of projects through the use of every social media platform available.
Voting started on Tuesday, January 5, and fans of Meghan can vote once each day for free, can double their votes if they opt-in to receive email updates about Meghan’s progress, and can buy votes with donations to the Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation ($1 = one vote).
“I’m honored to have been asked to compete,” Meghan writes.
Meghan’s love of art has led to a personal exploration of many forms, forums, and formats for self-expression. Her paintings have been shown in galleries, her personality and approach to comedy won her spots on several podcasts and comedy panels, her beauty and style have attracted notice from prestigious publications, and her music won praise from producers.
There is a show business truism that one could build a brick wall on a stage and a charismatic performer will attract an audience even from behind that wall. The pandemic of 2020-’21 has been a brick wall on every stage. Brick wall, meet charismatic performer. There is an audience out there that does not know it is about to discover the multi-talented Meghan Jenkins. Jetset Magazine may help her knock down that wall.
