What makes a strong woman
Organized by: Jeanphilippe Charles
What makes a strong woman? I am a 22 year old, who was raised by one of God's mightiest and strongest woman on earth Her name says royalty, her personality says majesty, her actions says leader/ queen/ conqueror. Gave birth to 10 kids in a country where back then the word opportunities never existed. In 1994 my father came to the US for a better life. He would send us money sometimes but most of the times we had nothing, or so it seems. A couturier at heart, my mother would make and sell fabrics La ville ( downtown ), came up with amazing ideas on how to make money, most nights we never went to bed hungry, and if we did, it never bothered us because we knew how it was.
I am the tenth of my mothers children s. We are now in 2015 and my mother is still in Haiti, it breaks my heart to know how my people think, not once have they created opportunities for Haiti or themselves. I write this for the sole purpose to raised money for my mother and also to create opportunities in Haiti for right now i am not where i want to be in life. I am studying Architecture at Miami Dade college, planning on getting by Bachelors at the University of Miami. Once graduated, i will utilize my skills and knowledge to change and restore my country. And again i ask, what makes a strong woman? Thank you for reading
