Janine White

If Janine White was asked to submit her resume, it would probably read something like this: actress, writer, performer, poet, banker, Toastmaster, pageant queen, cook.

She has done so many things and been involved in various aspects of the creative arts since her days at The St Michael School. It is something she enjoys and even though at times she can be the quietest person in the room, she enjoys being on stage.

In 2006 and 2011, for her entries in NIFCA, she won bronze and silver awards. She also won the Alfred Pragnell Award for theatre along with three other awards recognising her skills in theatre and the performing arts. 

You might remember her hilarious self-penned dramatic piece titled “This Body Is Not Mine” which won her the Prime Minister’s Scholarship and a Gold Award at NIFCA 2012. 

Fast forward three years later. That’s when she joined the cast of Laff-it-Off full time after travelling with them to the USA the year before.


Janine is an avid poet and her skills have taken her to Washington, D.C. in 2001 to compete at the International Symposium of Poets, where she was recognized as a Poet of Merit. She has also won a number of poetry slams and other competitions such as Baje Yout Poets, Barbados Writers Collective and Le Mot Juste.

After winning the Miss Big & Beautiful pageant in 2006, she went on to represent the country in the regional pageant and came second. 

The graduate of Barbados Community College and the University of The West Indies’ Cave Hill Campus studied Mass Communication, Sociology and Psychology.

In 2013, Janine was recognized by Barbados Faces as one of the distinguished women in Barbados and was featured on their website.
