Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

I Love Me Some Yendi

Yendi Phillips, the new Miss Jamaica, is irresistible.

I don't think she was the prettiest contestant in the recent competition, but in the interviews and the talent competition, she sounded like someone who loves her life, was enjoying every minute of the competition, and felt freed up to speak her mind without caring too much about what people thought.

I love that quality about her. It is usually found in older Jamaican women who have gone through the "young girl" stage, and have developed a confidence and independence in who they are. Yendi seems to have developed these qualities at a young age -- I hope that she can continue in the same vein through the actual competition itself.

Heck, it would be great to meet her to see if she really is as I have described her!

Here is an article covering an interview with her -- the high point has to be the "wedgy."

Very nice young lady..
This is the first time in years that I am not disappointed with Jamaica's selection for Miss Jamaica.

Well, you were my favourite contestant and I cheered for you all the way. Feicidades!!!

However, I want to know if you having a tatoo could be one of the reasons why you were not on the top 5?

It was so nice to see a young lady out of Jamaica,that is the type we should be bragging about. No more skin out thank you Lord there is hope for the youth.
