What led you to pursue your career?
It was passion that led me to my career; passion that was nurtured and not allowed to wither.
I am forever grateful to those who fed those small flames. I have always loved science and its methods of discovery. Even at a young age, I dismantled toys and discarded devices seeking to comprehend their inner workings. The toys were most often mine but at times they were those of my siblings. Nurturing this inner passion was the encouragement of my parents. They taught us to value all learning and knowledge, whether in the art and letters, in politics, history, biology or astronomy.

Have you heard?
A Marriott has opened in Port-au-Prince and a Hilton isn’t far behind.
Announcements like this mark a change in Haiti’s business landscape that the Haitian Diaspora should be happy about. In the last few years, some of the bold business-minded members of the diaspora have taken matters into their own hands and started their own businesses.
These entrepreneurs understand that business creation is the best route to economic self-sustainability for the country. It is exciting to discover and report on these emerging businesses. As you look at the list you might say, well it’s only four businesses, but as these businesses succeed they will inspire others. Remember that, seven years ago, these business opportunities did not even exist, much less have an upscale supermarket carrying a product made in Haiti. The products from these companies are either created in Haiti or use materials from Haiti.
