Activist

On October, 2017

“I originally wanted to just kind of stay out of the spotlight and become a psychologist or a nurse at a psychiatric ward. I realized it would be a shame to waste the platform I was given. Having the ability to go into the acting and fashion world, I just figured why not use that to make my platform bigger. That way, instead of helping the world one by one with patients, I could help the masses. The best advice I’ve been given is to be strategic in the mind, young at heart, and wise in the soul. If you have those three things you can navigate pretty easily any path that you’re on" PARIS JACKSON

Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

October 2017

Paris and her manager (and friend) Tom Hamilton helped distribute supplies to the families affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, after the island was destroyed by the natural disaster.

During her trip, Paris brought supplies to a school located in the town that was without electricity and running water. She also donated a backpack, personal water purifier and solar light for each child at the school, as most — if not all — of the students did not have electricity in their homes and were unable to complete their homework.

“I made friends today. Feels good to be with beings of light on that mutual frequency. What incredible little bundles of joy,” Paris captioned an Instagram photo, which showed her reading a book to a child at a school.
