Hannah Davis: Just Your Average Caribbean Girl
Hannah Davis was born on May 5, 1990 in Saint Thomas. She has said that the best part of growing up in the U.S. Virgin Islands were the friendly people, great weather, and waking up to the sound of waves on the beach. In school her favorite subjects were Spanish and Caribbean History.
