Like most children in Haiti, Rose-Matheline grew up with so many wonderful dreams. She wanted to be a dancer, or an environmentalist or a civil engineer. As a child, Rose-Matheline swore only by those careers until she recently realized she doesn’t have the means to pursue them. Rose-Matheline has always been taken care of by her parents and was oblivious to all the sacrifices it took them to take care of her and her four siblings. Her father, who was working in a vetiver factory in Cayes, and her mother, who was a small vendor, could barely feed them, let alone pay for their schooling. But thanks to Hope for Haiti’s support to her primary and secondary schooling (St. Michel Secondary), Rose-Matheline was never turned away for her family’s inability to pay.
