On May 1st, Jacmel held its annual Artisan Fair at the city hall downtown. Vendors from all over the greater Jacmel region sold handmade clothing, beauty products, and crafts. Among them was Mosobwa, the company headed by our very own Joanes, who unveiled some new and unique woodwork for the first time.
We had a quick chat with Diamond and Christian to talk about their life and experiences in Haiti so far.
Christian is from Colorado by way of Texas, and she graduated from University of Colorado Boulder in 2016. She arrived in Haiti in August 2017 and is enjoying these final months of the school year.
Diamond arrived in in 2016 after graduating from Florida Institute of Technology. She has been an intern for nearly two years now and will be staying on for a third!
Since she started school, 6th grader Oriana has always been both bright and dedicated. In November 2017, her academic strength was tested and proven when she competed in a department wide contest and won first place in her age group. The contest was hosted by Plan, an organization that funds a variety of community projects in Haiti.
