Jackson, or “Jack” as he prefers to be called, lives with his parents in a village in northern Haiti. Jack says of his childhood, “My family made an effort to push me in school in order to help them in the future. Life was so hard but we never stopped praying to see how Jesus would help us succeed.” His recommender describes him as kind, intelligent, and sensitive to others’ needs. Jack speaks four languages – French Creole, French, Spanish, and English. When he is not volunteering with Young Life and church, he can be found volunteering his time tutoring teens for their upcoming exams.

Jack had been volunteering with Young Life for almost ten years before being selected as part of the Developing Global Leaders program. As a DGL student he is studying economics because he believes it will give him the opportunity he needs to improve his country’s economic strife and will also help him lift his family out of poverty. He will be the first in his family to graduate university.
