One of Ms. Jackson’s passions is photography, which led her to become the first to annually host a one- woman photographic show at the Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. State Office Building in Harlem, USA. All proceeds from the sales of Debi’s photography is donated to the Youth Development Foundation, Inc. (YDF) of which she is the CEO and President. 

 

For over 44 years the Youth Development Foundation, Inc. (YDF) has awarded more than $2,000,000 in scholarships to young women from around the world through the Hal Jackson’s Talented Teens International (HJTTI) scholarship program. Ms. Jackson served as Producer of HJTTI, which showcased young talented women and gave them exposure to the music, film and entertainment industries. Debi’s philanthropic work includes awarding scholarships to participants of Black Women for Black Girls of which she is an Executive Board Member. She strongly believes in volunteerism and for over 30 years has given her time and voice to community and non-profit organizations such as Insight For New Housing, Make The Grade and Wheelchair Charities which has raised millions of dollars to mobilize, educate and entertain quadriplegics and paraplegics at the Henry J. Carter Specialty Hospital and Nursing Facility. 

 

If you know Debi, you know that she has traveled extensively. Since she loves the opportunity of visiting other countries, Debi started an online travel store where you can book your travel anywhere in the world. As she says, “When you think of travel, think My Feet Travel.” You can visit her online travel store at www.MyFeetTravel.com

 

Ms. Jackson’s New York corporate experience encompasses the broad field of Human Resource Administration where she worked as an Employment Supervisor, EEO Officer and Labor Relations Manager. She then went into higher education at Fairleigh Dickinson University as the University Assistant Director of Affirmative Action.
