Indy "Poupouche"

Indy, (who goes by Poupouche), grew up in Port-au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti. The city itself has a large commercial area near coast, while most of the city’s residence live in the hills above the city. Many of the neighborhoods have seen a rapid growth in slums since the 2010 earthquake struck and frequently flood during hurricane season every year. Living in a city that has seen so much devastation would seem to foster much hopelessness, but not for Poupouche.

Poupouche states that, despite all his country has faced, he had a very happy childhood. “My parents do so much for me, from my childhood until now; they have always cared for me. They do not have enough, but they do a lot with their limited resources.” Poupouche began volunteering with Young Life in 2011. Now a DGL student, he is attending Notre Dame d’Haiti, majoring in economics, and hopes to work towards developing his country. He says, “After graduation, I want to be part of a new economic system for Haiti and bring new ideas into action. I want to create business and jobs, and to be part of the new Haiti citizens are dreaming of.” Poupouche will be the first person in his family to graduate from college.
