Student in Focus: Nelzida Petit-Frere


My name is Nelzida Petit-Frere.  I was born in September 14th, 2003 in Haut Mithon Leogane, Haiti and I am living in the same community. I am 14 years old. My mother’s name is Nelia Lovince, she is a seamstress and my father’s name is Franckel Petit-Frere, he is a gardener. I have four brothers and one sister. My parents have five children together, four boys and one girl, just me and I am also the youngest child in the family. My father has another daughter, she is the oldest child of my Dad. My father had her before he was with my Mother and she lives in another community with her mother.

I go to Institution Mixte La Probite de Chatuley and I am in 8th grade. I love going to school and I also enjoy doing the chores, I collect water with my brothers for our family. I like to help my family a lot. I am a great cook, they love the food every time I cook. My favorite meal is rice and bean sauce with mashed vegetables.

I am Christian. I go to church every Saturday. Adventist of the 7th day. I have church on Saturday at 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM, and on Sunday and Wednesday, we have services in the afternoon.

After my secondary studies, I want to become a Nurse because I want to take care of the sick and I would like to be very good at using computer.

Thank you HAITI SCHOLARSHIPS.  My parents and I love you so much and we appreciate your help. When we received the phone call to let us know that I am selected to receive a scholarship from you, we were so happy. I did not have uniform, anything ready for school. My parents did not know what to do to send me to school this year and please do not forget they have four boys to support too and my Father has one more child.

Thank you so much for helping Haitian People. Life in Haiti is not easy here, it’s complicated. Thank you for supporting education.
