Cassandra

Cassandra, who usually goes by Cassie, was raised by her aunt in northwest Haiti. Tragically, her aunt passed away in February 2018, so Cassie now lives with her parents, 3 brothers, sister, and niece in a 3 room apartment in Delmas, a commune on the outskirts of the capital city, Port-au-Prince. Her father is a fisherman and her mother is a merchant.

Cassie became involved in Young Life after she went to camp in 2004. She remembers being stopped by gang members on her way home from camp. She says, “I prayed to God to spare us as they stole our belongings but spared our lives.” She attests Young Life as being one of her most significant life experiences that has shaped her into the woman she is today. Her area director describes Cassie as a “servant of God who is kind and will make a big impact on her country one day.”

Now as a Developing Global Leader, Cassie is studying communications with the desire to become a minister on a radio or TV show after graduation. She will be the first in her family to graduate university.
