Three years ago today, a 35 second earthquake in Haiti destroyed so much. I cannot even imagine what it was like, or what it felt like to lose family, friends, everything you have. At the time of the quake, I didn't know The Real Haiti. I knew only what the TV showed me and what I was told. I was told that Haiti was a beautiful country full of amazing people and culture. It wasn't until I experienced it that I feel in love with this unique place called Haiti.
I am so humbled to be a part of trying to reshape Haiti's image so that one day it will be a travel destination that it once was. I love this country so much and the people are the number one reason for that. As much as I promote the great things about this country, I always remind people that I don't ignore the issues it has. I don't try to erase them, or pretend like they don't exist. This blog is simply highlighting my experiences and opportunities that I have had in Haiti. I hope you learn something from me.
God bless all of the people in Haiti, Haitian diaspora, Haiti lovers, and especially those who rest in peace from that devestating tragedy that has opened the world's eyes to focus on a new Haiti.
