Student in Focus: Yeye Jesumene

Written by Yeye Jesumene and Berlyne Bien-Aime

"Hello,
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 go 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 or 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's 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"
Yeye.

Thanks to all of you who have allowed us to keep students like Yeye in school - you are making a difference!
