By Augustin Tony Junior.
My name is Augustin Tony Junior. I was born in May 27 th , 1990. I am
twenty six years old. My story is not very long. I was born in Sainte-
Croix Hospital, in Leogane. I am living in Haiti.
I have two brothers and one sister. My sister and I had the
same father, his name was Antonio Augustin. He died when I was one
year old. My brothers also lost their father too. My mother’s name is
Marie Miquete Saint-Hubert, she is from Leogane. She does not have a
husband to help her. I am living with three people.
I have two nephews. My sister is pregnant, the Doctor said that she will
give birth to a baby girl, maybe I ‘ll have a niece soon, by the end of this
week or next week. I have two Aunts and three uncles.
My kindergarten school was New Mission de Leogane. After that, I went
to college Lumiere de Leogane for Primary studies and I am now in
Maison-Oeuvre in Chatuley, in new Secondary 1.
We always have activities in our school every May 1 st . This year we had
it again, it’s called ‘’Manje Kreyol’’ which means Creole Food. We
invited reporters from the local radio stations and some students from
We cooked Haitian rice with beans, vegetables; we made chocolate,
coffee; papaya and cherry juice and other tropical fruit juice. That was
one of the best day of this year.
On May 17 th , we also organized a community event in Leogane, we had
the authorization to do that from the Mayor’s office. We cleaned the
city. When we have community events, everyone has to wear the
school’s shirts or t-shirts and blue jeans.
I like Haiti scholarships ’s program very much. I stop going to school
after the earthquake, two reasons : school was closed and my mother
was not ready to pay school for me. Emmanuel Jean and I had the
chance to volunteer with Jim Mahar for All Hands Volunteers and this
man is a good person . I remember the meeting that we had with Junior
and Smith to create this program for Haitian students in Leogane.
I love you DONORS and HAITISCHOLARSHIPS is the BEST!
