My life before HandUp
I am from the city of Mirebalais and I have no brothers or sisters. Both of my parents died when I was little so I went to live with an aunt who mistreated me. When I was 8, I left her house to live on the streets.
My life at HandUp
I am thankful to God for taking me off the streets and now I am singing for Him in my church choir. I am good with macramé and enjoy coming up with new patterns so we can have more designs. I was also awarded Most Improved this year and hope to continue to get better.
What I’ve learned
Since so many have helped me, I also want to help others. God has opened doors for me through HandUp and now I feel motivated to accomplish things in the future.
My hopes for the future
One day, I hope to be a businessman.
