Ricki Curling

People's Choice Award

1.What is the funniest thing you remember as a child?
The funniest thing I remember as a child was when I tried to cook a "gourmet" meal for my family. I ended up mixing all the spices in the kitchen and made something that looked and smelled like a science experiment gone wrong. My family still teases me about it to this day, but it always brings a good laugh!

2.What is the one piece of clothing you wish you owned?
I wish I owned a beautiful, flowing evening gown designed by Bahamian designer Theodore Elyett. His designs are stunning and perfectly capture the elegance and vibrant culture of the Bahamas. Wearing one of his gowns would make me feel like a true island queen.

3.What season of the year is your favorite and why?
My favorite season is summer. In the Bahamas, summer means endless sunshine, beach days, and cultural festivals. It's a time when the islands are alive with music, dance, and the warmth of our people, making every day feel like a celebration.

4.What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie is *Black Panther. It showcases strong, powerful women and celebrates African culture in such a beautiful and inspiring way. Plus, it reminds me of the importance of embracing our heritage and being proud of where we come from.

5.What song makes you think of yourself?
The song that makes me think of myself is "Bush Medicine" by Bahamian singer Rik Carey. It's a vibrant, upbeat song that celebrates the unique culture and resilience of the Bahamian people. It always lifts my spirits and reminds me to stay true to my roots and embrace my heritage.
