Maccene "Tison"

Maccène, who prefers to be called Tison, lives with his brother in a little house in Maïssade, a small community in central Haiti where most residents live on as little as $1 a day. Growing up, his parents earned a meager income raising and selling livestock. Tragically, when Tison was seventeen years old, his mother passed away. Without a faith to call his own, Tison began behaving badly, often involving himself in fights. Things did not start to change until he went to Young Life camp for the first time in 2012 and decided to follow Jesus.

Speaking four languages – Haitian Creole, French, English, and Spanish – Tison is now studying education as part of the Developing Global Leaders program. He says, “Now I get to start a new life because I can go to college. I will work hard and set a good example in everything.” Already described as a hard worker, he loves being the first in and the last out in his work as club director. Tison will no doubt make a great leader and teacher one day as he serves his community and country to the best of his ability. He will be the first in his family to graduate from university.
