Eighteen year-old Nyah Bandelier has been named Miss World Bahamas. The honour was bestowed upon the young Bahamian beauty who represented the island of Eleuthera on Sunday, May 26 at Atlantis on Paradise Island. She also won the swimsuit competition and was in the top three for the evening gown competition.

When asked about a proud moment in your life, Nyah says, "Aside from graduating high school, my proudest moment would be overcoming bullying which made me more confident and how I grew stronger from that experience."

"My childhood years were very active. I have lots of fun memories playing and running around with my cousins and my neighbors. I attended dance school where I learned ballet and acrobatics. Attending church on Sundays was also a huge part of my childhood. I always looked forward to the summers when I would get to travel with my grandmother. While there were fun times, I also experienced some bad. But I’ve learned not to let the negative memories affect or dictate my life but rather grow from the experience."

Nyah says her eyes change colour between blue, green and grey, depending on her mood, what she's wearing and sometimes even the weather.
