This January I had the opportunity to spend a week in Cap Haitien, Haiti where we spent most of our time working at a school in the town of Cima. I will admit that I was not sure what to expect before going – I was excited, for after leaving Haiti at the age of 7 this would be my first time back to Haiti, but I was also nervous and anxious to see how we would implement our work and how it would be received. I was not at all prepared for the experience I would have during my short stay in Haiti. I was blown away by how comfortable and at peace I felt. The people we encountered were amazing. From our hostess to the teachers we worked with, everyone welcomed us with open arms.
