My favorite thing about my country is the people. Haitians are warm, friendly, and generous. Their tradition of hospitality is clear in how they treat guests or go out of their way to help strangers. Haitians are very proud of their culture and history. No matter what society's conditions, Haitians celebrate life with joy, laughter, and dancing; even after the terrible Earthquake that killed 100's of thousand they found courage to celebrate life. My future aspirations is to go back to school and continue my education. What I'm most proud of is that no matter what life has thrown at me, I've always held my head high. I don't find happiness in materialistic things are diplomas and degrees (those things one should be very proud of), but in the way and I treat people and the impact I make in someones life.
1. My platform is Human Trafficking with an emphasis on child trafficking
2. I chose my platform because I see the broken lives of the women who have survived trafficking and I break with them. Although I don’t know their pain, I am grieved because I know what they do not have. The second motive comes from my faith, which tells me to defend the defenseless and be a voice for the voiceless.
