On Dec. 10, I drove down to the North Miami Beach Library to attend the Haitian Diaspora Integration Forum where President Michel Martelly was in attendance. The day was full of great information on the progress of Haiti since the earthquake including construction, education, tourism and more.
"We think it's very important to change the image," said President Martelly. A great reminder of why my hard work is important and I will continue this as long as it's possible!
The best part...I introduced myself to the first lady and before I finished, she said..."I know who you are!"
In the evening, Martelly delivered his State of the Country address where he covered a lot of the same information, but excited the crowd with his personality, humor and down-to-earth presence.
I could go on and on, but the administration did such a great job of documenting the information that I have included the links below. Enjoy!
