Supporting comments: "A truly original thinker; an independent and conscientious worker who agonizes, if she must, over a project, academic or creative; a student who consistently works at her highest level to do her best at all times; and a young intellectual with a healthy, burning, academic and scholarly curiosity, Vanidy Bailey is as much a model-student as she is a young distinguished leader. Her scholarly pursuits in English and Black Studies, her leadership as Chief Minister of the BSU, and her astonishing ability to share her gifts for music, dance, and poetry make Vanidy a true "Renaissance Woman." Vanidy will leave behind a great legacy."
