BAHAMAS 2013: A YEAR IN REVIEW WITH VANDIA SANDS
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
TheBahamasWeekly.com has once again selected Bahamians to canvas their opinions on highlights of The Bahamas over the year 2013, as well as ask about the direction of the country. Their comments will be shared over the coming weeks.

Through this exchange we hope to also highlight Bahamians in our community, and share their personal triumphs, that may or may not have made the news.

Here is the opinion of Vandia Sands, Miss Earth Bahamas:

1) What event do you feel was the most important for the Bahamas in 2013?

One event that was important to the Bahamas in 2013 was the celebration of the Women's Suffrage Movement during our 40th Anniversary. Women from across the political divide were recognized and honored for fighting for the rights of women to vote. This period was significant to me because it sparked the discussion on the elimination of all discrimination against women.

2) Who passed away this year that you feel will be 'most missed' and why?

P. Anthony White! Mr. White was a prolific writer who assisted in prepping me for my first local pageant. His death was such a shock, because although my first encounter with him was early summer, it was only a few months later that I found out while competing at an international pageant, that he had passed away. He will be missed by the Bahamian community, not only because he was one of the greatest literary geniuses, but also because he was such a jovial person. He agreed to help me with no hesitation, and I appreciated that about him.

3) Who was the most inspirational/influential Bahamian in 2013 and why?

My brother Leevan 'Superman' Sands! He is such a phenomenal patriot and an astounding brother, father, husband and son. Leevan is an Olympic athlete who fell short to injury during the 2012 London Olympics. This was devastating to his family and many thought that that incident was detrimental to his career, but he persevered through rehab and therapy and now he's stronger than ever and ready to get back to business! I've watched him during this hiatus and he did not complain, he remained the humble individual that he has always been, and worked tirelessly around the clock. His tenacious grip on his dream and purpose motivated and empowered me to live in my purpose, and propelled me to be patriotic to our country.
