ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

After I received my bachelor degree in visual arts in Puerto-Rico, I decided to come back home and see what contribution I could bring to my country’s development.

An opportunity was offered to me to work for ActionAid Haiti. I was 24 at that time and to be honest, I did not know much about my country’s complexity. 5 years later I feel that I have learnt and shared so much with my fellow compatriots. It feels good to be part of a structure that goes to the roots of the problems to bring solutions to inequality.

But my biggest joy of all is that I can share with the world a more positive image of Haiti through my pictures.

After all, I am very proud to be Haitian!
