Asia Jackson is an actress and creative director based in Los Angeles, California. Growing up a military brat, Asia spent her childhood all over the world.

She also has a YouTube channel where she regularly uploads engaging & educational content about skincare, fashion, and self-care.

In October 2016, Asia created the global movement #MagandangMorenx, literally translated to “beautiful brown skin”, to challenge colorism and celebrate the diversity of beauty in the Philippines. It has garnered international media coverage in publications such as NBC News, AJ+, Teen Vogue, HYPEBAE, ABS-CBN (Philippines), and Glamour Magazine.

I never try to intentionally set myself apart from the rest because I don’t try to be anything other than myself. If being myself makes me different, then that’s just the way it is–I never seek to be so.
