I always knew I wanted to come to Haiti. My cousin married a Haitian woman and had four beautiful children with her and, through them, I was given the opportunity to experience the beauty and culture of the nation. As i studied politics and development, the story of the country wove back and forth through the books, exemplifying misery, oppression and bad luck. The horrors and struggles the people of this country have been through are terrible and shouldn't be forgotten. But they also shouldn't be the focus!
