    She's from good stock. Grand dad Allen Hodge and cousin Guy Hill were speed demons back in the day. Her mom wasn't no slouch either. Congratulations

    I am going to say it. Give Adaeja Hodge one of those first time home owners homes. Are we going to wait for the USA to lure her away and make her an offer she and her family cannot refuse. Give this wonderful young lady her flowers now. She has now given the BVI more publicity than we can ever ask for.

      She's born and raised in the US, they don't have to "lure" her away. She's free to choose where she wants to go for the betterment of herself.

    Back in the day during slavery the PR governor refused to send back run away slaves to the Virgin Islands. We have a long history with PR. Keep out of VI and PR business. After slavery was abolished here slaves in St. John would jump over the cliff to swim to freedom near Pockwood Pond. Our constitution speaks to parents and grandparents from the greater Virgin Islands. One Virgin Islands. God blessings.
