There’s no place like home. It’s the space where we form our first bonds, make lasting memories and share experiences with the people that matter most. Hometown pride is everywhere, from sports teams to universities and everything in between. But life moves on, and a lot of times so do we. Whether it’s across the country or down the road, for many of us, home remains the one place we can return to and be welcomed back with open arms. We booked a flight and followed our friend, Tamika Samuel – Ms. St. John 1999, back to her hometown of St. John, USVI to get a glimpse of what it is that makes her place of origin so special. Luckily, we didn’t have to click our heels twice to get there.
