Haitians in America: Actress Pulls Inspiration from Haiti to Represent in Entertainment Industry

“To Haitian fathers, if you’re not a doctor, lawyer or, engineer you might as well be selling crack cocaine,” said Karina Bonnefil, but this didn’t stop her from pursuing her dreams and becoming an actress. Inspired by the comedy show “Languichatte Debordus,” Bonnefil left her hometown of Port-au-Prince and went on to represent Haitian Culture in the Disney Movie “Exchange” and expand the Haitian presence in the entertainment industry.
