Here is my short story. Please read it!
My name is Pierre Wilby. I am twenty six years old. I am from Petite – Anse, La Gonave, Haiti. I live in Belval, Leogane. I am living with four people. My mother ‘s name is Weseline Charles. My father’s name is Dieula Pierre. My mom and my dad are living in La Gonave. My mother has eight children in total and my father has three children. They have three children together and I am the third one. I have eight brothers and one sister.
I was in Wesleyenne of La Gonave for my primary studies and I came to Leogane for my secondary studies. This academic year, 2015-2016, I am in philo at College Phare of Leogane because Haiti Scholarships has been helping me to continue the studies. Because you donate, a lot of Haitian students go to school, they have their school paid. Without your donations, Haitischolarships would not have been able to do this incredible work in Haiti.
Leogane is a pretty town, but I prefer La Gonave. In La Gonave, there are lots of cows, goats and horses.
We have the best watermelon in the country and the world and it is cheap home. You can buy a big melon for fifty or sixty Gourds. And when the watermelons get to Leogane, you will pay one hundred to two hundred Gourds for one big melon, and if you have five Gourdes, you will have a small piece. Williamson is another place in the North of Haiti you can get melon, it is in Archahaie .
La Gonave is an island. Everyone knows how to swim there. If you ever have a chance to visit Haiti, please visit Leogane and La Gonave. You will fall in love with the country for its beautiful and good people of hospitality.
Before ending my story, please, let me wish you Donors and Haitischolarships Staff members a ‘Merry Christmas 2015 and a Happy new year!’
