Je suis diplôme en Gestion de projet et actuellement j’étudie la gestion des Affaires. Je suis Secouriste Volontaire de la Croix-Rouge Haïtienne depuis 2008 et en même temps volontaire/membre du comité local de la Commune de Carrefour pour cette même institution.
Malgré le fait que ma disponibilité est tres limitée, je ne ménage jamais mes efforts et a me porter volontaire dans les différentes actions de la CRH.
Et cela ne m’empêche pas a continuer a chercher d'autres moyens et institutions œuvrant dans le domaine du volontariat, pour offrir ma participation.
Avant j'aimais le volontariat, puisque c'est le moyen le plus sur d’être utile a ses proches en étant convaincu que le seul salaire est la satisfaction des bénéficiaires, mais c'est avec le tremblement de terre du 12 janvier 2010 qu'avait connu mon pays, que j'ai vu le miracle du volontariat et de la solidarité lorsque j'ai vu des jeunes et adultes venus de partout, au services de mes frères et sœurs d’Haïti.
Soyons fiers d’être Volontaires.
I would not be who I am without my community, therefore I must give back to others freely. The rewards of volunteering always outweigh the efforts. I have volunteered at home in Canada, and abroad, in countries such as Haiti, Brazil and Switzerland. Every experience has brought me a sense of purpose and a wealth of knowledge that is invaluable. As a great Canadian once said: "To live a lot, you gotta give a lot. To give a lot, you gotta be part of." The only way to know is to do. So volunteer. It will change your life.

Being a volunteer in Haiti one month after the devastating earthquake of 2010 was a life changing experience. Seeing how grateful Haitians were by people coming from afar to give their time, work and love was deeply moving. It was incredible to see hope rising in their eyes while receiving assistance. May this hope not fail, as Haiti receive a continuous and consistent assistance, able to reconstruct and sustainably develop the nation.
Ser uma voluntária no Haiti um mês depois do devastador terremoto de 2010 foi uma experiência que impactou minha vida. Ver a gratidão dos haitianos ao ver pessoas vindas de longe para dar seu tempo, trabalho e amor, foi profundamente comovente. Foi incrível ver a esperança nascer em seus olhos ao receber assistência. Que essa esperança não falhe, mas que o Haiti receba uma assistência continua e consistente, capaz de reconstruir e desenvolver sustentavelmente a nação.
My assignment as an UNV to Afghanistan was one of the most unique experiences of my life. Answering the needs of Natural Disaster induced IDPs and Natural Disaster affected people gave a greater meaning to this very challenging assignment. I won’t forget my Afghans colleagues, who showed me an unknown face of Afghanistan, reminding them gives me hope for a future with peace.
Meu serviço como voluntária para as Nações Unidas no Afeganistão foi uma das experiências mais singulares da minha vida. Responder às necessidades de deslocados internos e populações afetadas por desastres naturais trouxe um sentido maior para uma tarefa muito desafiadora. Não esquecerei meus colegas afegãos que me mostraram uma face do Afeganistão que eu não conhecia, lembra-los me dá esperança de um futuro com paz.
Je suis volontaire depuis 1994, à partir de l'Université, dans le mouvement de la Croix-Rouge. Dans le souci d'aider la population vulnérable, je m'engage toujours à être là où la population a été frappée par une catastrophe. J'ai été tour à tour au Rwanda, à Goma (Est de la République Démocratique du Congo), en Haiti, au Niger, au Congo Brazzaville partout où on a besoin de mes services avec le souci de partager mes expériences.

Situated in a small region on the island of La Gonave, Haiti, I'm helping to build water systems that can provide the local communities with treated drinking water, something highly coveted and hard to come by as the Haitian government does little for these communities. To strengthen the project, we are encouraging the local neighborhood committee to oversee the entire project, including managing the construction and budget, making it truly grassroots development.

In 2003, I was a volunteer for the Sister Cities Program in Havana, Cuba. In 2009, I was a volunteer librarian in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. In 2011, I was a short-term missionary in Jacmel, Haiti. All experiences taught me lessons about life, happiness, and helping our fellow man. A magazine article I wrote resulted in at least one child in Haiti finding a sponsor. That child now goes to school and has one hot meal everyday.
