Cassiann "Cassy"

Cassiann, who usually goes by Cassy, lives with another Young Life leader and friend in Maïssade, a small community in central Haiti, where most of the population live on as little as $1 a day. The oldest of eight children, his parents worked in agriculture to provide for their most basic needs. Cassy says, “I faced a lot of difficulties growing up as I spent seven years with disease. I couldn’t eat or go to school. Yet one day, God healed me.” Despite the challenges of growing up with a debilitating disease, Cassy managed to graduate high school. He met a Young Life leader, Jesus, and then says, “I started a new life.” Cassy has now been serving as a Young Life leader himself since 2011.

Now, as a Developing Global Leader, Cassy is studying administration science with the desire to manage and own his own business in order to create more jobs in his community. He wants to continue to serve Young Life and help his family and friends once he graduates. He says one of his most significant life experiences was the day that he found out he had been accepted into the DGL program as he had “been praying for God to help me go to college” for the three years since he had finished high school. He will be the first person in his family to graduate university.
