Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Oh, this was an unforgettable day and it will forever be at the top of my list. At the age of eight, while still living in Cap-Haitien, my father surprised me and my sibling two siblings with a trip to Milot to visit the majestic Palais Sans Souci and the world 8th wonder, the Citadelle. From the horse ride to the history lesson by our tour guide made it a life-changing day. I was always proud of my country but this experience brought an additional sense of pride in me. Seeing what my ancestors was able to accomplish were a definite eye-opening moment for me.
