    Well this is just my humble opinion, but she is a nice looking young lady but she just is “stunning” to me…now I could be wrong but I thought she was very lucky to place second. Jamaica has way more “gorgeous” women.As I said just my humble opinion. And also why enter every beauty contest available?

    She’s beautiful. I was so hoping she would win. One writer stated that she was “lucky” to place second. It wasn’t luck. If she didn’t win, she deserved to be right where she was – second place. She also stated that Jamaica has “way more” gorgeous women. Of course there is and always will be someone who is “way more” gorgeous than someone else. We could make that same statement about any gorgeous Jamaican woman. Just who is measuring anyway?? And what is wrong with entering every beauty contest? Let’s just celebrate how well she represented. Good job Yendi!

    Yendi is a full package: beautiful and charming personality. By entering this competition and not stopping at Miss world, it shows me that with determination we can truly achieve our goals in life. Jamaica is filled with beautiful women and Yendi as one of them went out there represented us and did us proud!!!

    I want all the ‘bad mind’ people to leave Yendi alone. Why don’t you enter the competitions she is entering and see who would win. She’s got determination, ambition; she is intelegent, beautifull and educated – which a lot of you that stands to critisize don’t have. I am sure you appreciate someone else from another country, why don’t you learn to appreciate your own. This is one of the very reason why this country is so messed up; we are doing this to our own selves and to our country. Keep up the good work yendi.
