With gratitude to all the friends and guests who entered, we are proud to announce that Kimberly Coquillon and Jean Charles Michel are the winners of the NAAHP Annual Conference ticket giveaway. Our winners receive 2 free tickets to attend the NAAHP Annual Conference at the NYU School of Law November 2, 3, and 4, 2017. 

Our winners told us why they wanted to attend the conference. We look forward to seeing them both this week at the conference.

Kimberly Coquillon: I believe that I must learn continually while challenging myself to strengthen my social work. I have already achieved a lot working with community organizations to increase participation in democratic practices such as voting and finding ways to resolve conflicts impart leadership skills and increase respect for the environment. In Morne Lazard, I would like to follow the example of the 16/ 6 s project that built homes in the community.I would like to draw on community members to help me improve the neighborhood’s management of household waste. Key to this will be the pooling of resources to purchase several waste bins and to locate them strategically where the waste can be gathered easily by the waste collectors. I dream that we can end throwing in gullies and burning of trash as the only means of waste disposable. I also dream that we can organize ourselves to separate waste into organic and non-organic piles and eventually set up a community recycling business. I want to attend the 6th annual conference of the National Alliance for the Advancement of Haitian Professionals NAAHP to learn about how to realize these dreams and to share my community-building experiences with other participants.

Jean Charles Michel: Dear Sirs and Madams, I have the honor to write the NAAHP about my desire to participate in the 6th annual Conference.

Indeed, I’m Jean Charles MICHEL, from Port au Prince, I’m 27 years old. I’m graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and I’ll pursue an MBA at the City University of New York in January 2018. I’m a member of “Students For Liberty” an organization located in Washington DC and I’m the founder of Students For Liberty in Haiti which is a branch of SFL in Washington D.C.

I would like to participate in this conference because it represents the biggest event that brings together a number of successful Haitian professionals in one place to speak and share their experiences. I’m motivated to attend this event because it’s an opportunity for me to learn from the story of all of those men and women who preceded me so well in entering the professional world. Participating in this conference will allow me to have a good insight of what it’s to undertake and evolve successfully in business in the United States, Haiti and in other places in the world.

Next year, the winner could be YOU!
