 In all the fuss over Rihanna’s interview in Glamour’s year-end edition, we nearly overlooked Susan Rice,  the United States’ U.N Ambassador of Jamaican heritage, who was also named one of Glamour’s Women Of The Year.

No less than President Obama bigs her up, telling Glamour she deserves to be a WOTY because:

“She understands the complex threats we face in the twenty-first century, and when those challenges demand action from the international community, Susan gets it done through a combination of skilled diplomacy and sheer determination.”

We love, love, love positive, progressive islandistas and Susan Rice always rises to the occasion as an ambassador not just for the U.S. but for women of Caribbean descent the world over.

Kudos, Ms. Rice.

From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
