Student in Focus: Jean Wesley Laurore

 

Hello,

My name is Wesley Jean Laurore. I am 16 years old. I was born May 5, 2001 in Leogane, Haiti.  My mother’s name is Jacqueline Victor and she is 37 years old. Wesley Laurore is my father’s name and he is 41 years old. My parents are not married, but they have been living together for a long time. They have two children together, two boys and I would like to have a sister. My little brother is five, he is so cute with long hair. I live with eight people including my uncle, cousins, etc. Both of my grandmothers are alive. On Sundays, I go with my family to St. Rose Catholic Church.

I went to kindergarten at Ribambellle when I was three. After kindergarten, I went to primary school called Wesleyenne de Leogane. Right now, I am in secondary school at Maison-Oeuvre de Leogane. I am in secondaire 1. I will finish secondary school in three years. I’m having exams right now and I will be successful. I speak two languages : Haitian Creole and French. My favorite subjects are Chemistry and Biology . School starts at 7:00am and ends at 2:00pm, but on Fridays we have sports class and we have to stay until 3:30pm. Before school, I like to go on runs.

I do everything at home just like women, but I’m not very good at doing laundry. I like to sweep and mop the floors. I know how to do the dishes because, as the oldest, a lot of the chores are given to me. I also cook for my family, but I can only make pasta. My favorite meal is rice and bean sauce with mashed vegetables.

When I am older, I want to become a doctor, a Surgeon because I want to take care of the sick and I enjoy working with other people. I hope to attend a university in Port-au-Prince. After the study, I would like to work in Leogane.

There is one thing that inspired me to become Surgeon. After the earthquake, I had seen too many people in pain, with broken legs and arms. They were crying, suffering too much and I was watching them and I was not able to do anything about that. Some of them did not get the chance to be seen on time by the Doctors. Haiti does not have enough good Doctors.

And you know that your help through your donation is so important for Haitian People. Thank you HAITI SCHOLARSHIPS and thank you DONORS. And I will pray for you so God will always give you something to share with us. My parents and I love you so much!

Student in Focus: Fleurome Jean Alex

By Fleurome Jean Alex

 

Hello ,

My name is Fleurome Jean Alex. I am nineteen years old. My story is very complicated. I was born in a hospital in Carrefour. I have four older sisters and two little brothers and I am living with two of my sisters in Leogane, Haiti.

My mother’s name is Saintine Rose – Marie. Unfortunately, I lost her on November 14th, 2013 from a heart attack. And my mom had two other boys after me. I was her first kid.

After my mom gave birth to me, I was adopted by my father ‘s wife. The name of my father’s wife is Laimilie Moise. She has four children. And I am her fourth child. My father’s name is Fleurome Alexandre. I am his second child and also living in Leogane.

I was sent to school when I was three years old at Le Mignon Kindergarten. I graduated from Kindergarten when I was six. Then I went to Ecole Freres Louis Borno & Institution Toussait Louverture for my Primary studies. For the secondary studies, I was in College Nouveau Surin Eveillard . After the earthquake in 2010, I was in 9th grade. Our school was totally collapsed and life became so hard, we could not go to school, we lost about five months of classes. The unforgettable earthquake!

A friend suggested me to like HaitiScholarships on Facebook. I applied and I was that lucky boy to be selected for a scholarship. I will never stop thanking you Haitischolarship and Donors for your big support to my family.

In Rheto , I was the third laureate for my school with 1005/1800 Points. In Philo, I was the second laureate , 1050/ 1700 points. I was successful. I just finished my Secondary Studies.

Now , it is time to write another chapter in the book of my life. University time! I am going to University this month in Port- au-Prince to learn accounting, and I would like to know about medicine too. Please, continue the donations to change Haitian’s life. May God protect and bless you all!

I am also the Vice-President of a local organization. It is called OPJDK ( Organisation Progressive des Jeunes pour le Development de K-da ), founded on December 24, 2014. We already cleaned a gutter which was filled with bad and dirty stuff in it and it smelled really bad. Each time heavy rain fell, it caused floods and health problems. For our first anniversary, coinciding with Christmas . We want to clean the area and have a Christmas decoration in a part of our neighborhood because we will not have enough decoration for the whole area.

This is the story of a young and very polite Haitian student, sponsored by

Haitischolarships.

Keep up the great work!!! I am Fleurome Jean Alex!
