I was born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti but grew up in Long Island, New York, and I am the last of eight children. Growing up I've always imagined what it would feel like to have an abundance of money and wealth. When asked the question, "what do want to be when you grow up?" My answer would be, "I want to be rich" and many would laugh at my wild imagination. Coming from a poor country and a lower class family, being "rich" is a word that is not commonly used, as it is rare to attain. Fast-forward, at the age of 15 my Mom became ill after our family splits; as a result, my dreams of attaining wealth slowly dies. Reality hits, and I get exposed to the "real world". My focus shifts to education, work and family. After five years, my Moms health becomes even more complicated after having a stroke. It's my sophomore year in college and although my schedule was crammed as is, it had to be me to step up to the plate to take care of my mom because, my other siblings have heavy responsibilities. Nevertheless, it excites me, to push myself to shoot for the moon and be a better version of myself. I was looking for something that would allow me to have freedom and time, to take care of my Mom and family, while still being able to pursue my goals. My imagination sparked and challenged me to an entrepreneurship journey.
