Student in Focus: Yeye Jesumene

By: Yeye Jesumene and Berlyne Bien-Aime.


Here is a part of the story of my life.  Please read it!

My name is Yeye Jesumene. I am twenty-one years old.  I was born in Port-a-Piment, but I am living in Belval, Leogane, Haiti.

My mother’s name is Occilia Metellus and my father’s name is Leonidas Yeye. I have two brothers and two sisters. My parents have five children and I am the third child.  My two sisters are older than me and the two boys are younger. I am living with my mother and my siblings and a niece. I have seven people living in my house.  My father does not live with us. He stays in Port-a-Piment, a city in the South of Haiti. He sometimes comes visit us in Leogane.  If I want to visit my dad, it will cost me five hundred Gourdes, it ‘s so far.

I am in Rheto at College Saint – Jean.  I go to school every day on foot  and it takes  about  25  minutes to get to the school.  I always go at 1 PM – 6 PM.

I would like to switch to the morning because  it is too hot now in Haiti for this academic year : 2015-2016.  And we also have computer class at school.  I am right now on vacation, but I had the final tests in the last week of June.  I have not got the result yet . I know that I will be successful!

Next year, I will be in Philo for sure.

After I finish my secondary school,  I would like to  go to  University to  learn very hard to become a Doctor and Pharmacist . I need your help Donors  to make this dream become true. Haitischolarships  : please never stop! I know you work really hard to pay for my school. I don’t know how many times I have asked  Berlyne to thank you for your big contribution in education. Every day I pray for you.

Maybe now you want to know my religion.  I do have one. I am Christian and I go to Alliance Chretienne Church in Leogane. I am the secretary of Sunday school. I also lead Sunday services . I am a member of the church’s gospel.  Our gospel is called ‘’ La Musica’ .   We always have a concert in July for our anniversary. I love singing.  I love the LORD.

I like sports a lot that why I bought a very big sports book. I like to play soccer and I also practice yoga.

Right now please allow me to take this moment to do one thing: to THANK HAITISCHOLARSHIPS MEMBERS  and DONORS for your efforts. I want to tell you that I love you so much!!!

Thank you
