Vicky Jeudy: A Natural Activist

Born to Haitian parents, Vicky attributes her Caribbean roots to serving people on a grander scale.

“…Hospitality is a major thing in our culture. It’s all about how you serve people,” she tells Sheen contributor Kimberly Knight.

On a recent trip to Haiti, Jeudy worked in local communities with Sean Penn’s J/P Relief Organization. This November, she’ll join the organization again by running in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon.

Keeping active is sure to help her overall health and the health of those gorgeous curls we all admire. Since appearing in the show’s first episode and throughout its four seasons, Vicky’s hair has grown out from cropped coif.
