Caribbean Magazine Names 25 Most Interesting People in the Region

SAN JUAN – Regional online magazine CaribJournal published on Tuesday its list of the 25 most interesting people in the Caribbean for 2014, a roster that includes Rihanna, Richard Branson and Usain Bolt.

Antigua and Barbuda’s prime minister, Gaston Browne, and Dominica Premier Roosevelt Skerrit, both re-elected in 2014, made the ranks of the most relevant politicians.

Virgin Group founder Branson and Claudine Neisson-Vernant, matriarch of the Neisson rum dynasty in Martinique, were selected as the top business people in the region.

Chefs Nina Compton of St. Lucia and Shawne Bryan of Anguilla are also on the list.

Barbados native Rihanna, Cuban singer Leslie Cartaya and Jamaican reggae artist Lee “Scratch” Perry were selected for their achievements.

The list continues with Haitian artist Edouard Duval, Jamaican writer Marlon James, director and curator of Cayman Islands National Gallery Natalie Urquhart, Dominican actress Dascha Polanco, Jamaican model Jeneil Williams and Trinidadian researcher Joan Latchman.

In sports, 2014 was a good year for Cuban baseball player Jose Abreu; Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt; Jamaican swimmer Alia Atkinson; and U.S. Virgin Islands-born NBA star Tim Duncan, according to CaribJournal.
