Jaclyn Nesheiwat Stapp, accomplished philanthropist, model, mentor, and spokesperson, kicks off the book tour for her first children’s book, Wacky Jacky: The Story of An Unlikely Beauty Queen. Making appearances at multiple kid-friendly venues and book stores across the state, Jaclyn will participate in a live reading, book signing and princess-inspired "play time" over the coming months. By creating this book, she hopes to raise awareness of childhood bullying and teach children how they can look within to find the solution. Wacky Jacky is currently available on and

Jaclyn will share her richly illustrated children’s book at book stores, public libraries, schools, and fun, out-of-the-box locations such as children’s day spas, from South to Central Florida in an ongoing mission to teach children to take pride in themselves and be kind to others.

Based on Jaclyn’s childhood experiences, Wacky Jacky’s ultimate message is that "you don’t need a crown to sparkle." By imparting valuable character lessons in an engaging story, Wacky Jacky is a tool for parents and teachers to teach lessons in self-esteem and positive attitude, and illustrate social issues like bullying. This playful and endearing story will inspire young girls to transcend their circumstances.

"I wrote Wacky Jacky to inspire every child to pursue their dreams, no matter what type of bully they may face. I felt the need to communicate to my children and to others that confidence, generosity and determination are all you need to succeed, and that it really is okay to be different. The easiest way for me to convey that inner beauty endures was through my own experiences. Wacky Jacky is that exciting and heartfelt journey, and I feel very fortunate to be able to share it with others," says Jaclyn.

A portion of book proceeds will benefit Jaclyn’s national outreach foundation, CHARM (Children Are Magical), a 501c3 non-profit organization which aims to heighten awareness of children’s issues, empower young women and enrich the lives of underprivileged youth by providing them the tools for a fulfilling future.
