This son of St. Elizabeth has an outstanding academic track record with his foundation being laid at Munro College, then further nurtured at the University of West Indies Mona Campus. At UWI Mona he read for a degree in History and a minor in Political Science. While there he was able to combine academic pursuit with his love for service and served the students in the capacities of Cultural and Entertainment Affairs Chairman of the Guild of Students and Vice President of the Guild of Students.
He embodies the motto of his alma mater, Munro College and in so doing, his light has not been hidden, thus, his service and leadership abilities transcended the Jamaican shores and on to the Barbadian shores where he undertook his studies in the field of law. There he achieved the rare feat of a Jamaican being elected President of the Cave Hill Guild of Students. He also served as a UWI student ambassador to the University of Costa Rica and as valedictorian of the University Of Virgin Island Future Global Leaders Institute. He was awarded his Bachelor of Law degree with Honours [LLB (Hons)] in 2006.
He has been involved in serving the people around him and this service has not gone unnoticed as he has been bestowed with a number of awards including the UWI- Mona Award for Service, The Guild of Students Award for Outstanding Leadership at both the Mona and Cave Hill Campuses; the Joseph S. Archibald, Q.C. Prize in Alternative Dispute Resolution, from the UWI- Cave Hill and the Kingsley Cooper Bursary for Intellectual Property from the Norman Manley Law School.
He was admitted to the Jamaican Bar on the 20th day of November 2008 and currently is an associate at Wentworth S. Charles and company, now into his sixth year of practice.
A keen desire to see the betterment of his country also led this notable gentleman Floyd to be a founding member of the Mona Campus Youth League, which was the first chapter established for Generation 2000, the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party.
He was elected President of Generation 2000 in June 2012 and appointed Junior Shadow Spokesperson for the Ministry of ICT and digital economy. On Sunday, July 20, 2014, his political journey saw him being chosen as the Jamaica Labour Party Candidate for the Constituency of South West, St. Elizabeth.
In February of 2016, he was elected Member of Parliament for South West St. Elizabeth and, having served as the Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth & Information with specific responsibility for the Youth Portfolio.
