Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves is number two on Caribbean Journal’s Caribbean’s 25 Most Interesting People For 2013.
Caribbean Journal, which describes itself as “the Caribbean’s leading digital newspaper”, says Gonsalves has become “perhaps the official spokesperson for the Caribbean region — from taking on the United Nations on the cholera issue to strong criticism of the Dominican Republic’s controversial citizenship ruling.
“St Vincent isn’t a large country, and yet, Gonsalves continues to be heard,” the publication says.
Number one on the list is Stephanie Villedrouin. Caribbean Journal says of her:
“You may think developing tourism in Haiti is a wonderful idea. You may not. But either way, the fact that you’re even thinking about tourism in Haiti is a testament to Villedrouin, who has taken a long-neglected sector and made it internationally relevant. We look forward to seeing what happens next.”
Other persons on the list include, Dominican hotelier and LIAT critic, Gregor Nassief; Jamaican sprint star, Usain Bolt; Barbadian musical superstar, Rihanna; the world’s greatest female track and field athlete, Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce; winner of the NBC show “The Voice”, Jamican, Tessanne Chin; and former prime minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness.
