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."
