US VIRGIN ISLANDER SHARES HEART TO PROMOTE HIS HOMETOWN

Boyd responded to a Department of Tourism social media essay contest on Facebook which asked U.S. Virgin Islanders living in New York what makes them great USVI Ambassadors and what it means to represent their hometown in North America.
Boyd, a talented singer, songwriter and model, nailed his
ambassadorship with an inspiring essay. "I am obligated to share
this extension of my culture - this belief that a smile, good
morning, good day or good evening can warm hearts and yes even
change lives. These are simple things to display to the world and
New York, yet they are the strongest aspects of my Virgin Islands
culture," Boyd penned.
