19-year-old Jamaican girl who works as a mortician
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported about a Jamaican girl, 19, who works as a mortician.
In an interview with the Jamaica Observer West, Campbell disclosed that the idea to become a mortician came to her when she was a grade nine student at Mount Alvernia High School in St James, Jamaica.
Her mother supported her love for mortuary work and even helped her get a voluntary service at the Delapenha Funeral Home in Montego Bay for one month. Campbell renders funeral services and visits the mortuary to assist when she is called upon or misses attending to dead bodies.
