Judith "June"

Judith (who goes by June), grew up in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. Between earthquakes and hurricanes, the inhabitants of this Caribbean island have found themselves constantly having to rebuild and reinvent their lives. As would be expected, one of the areas in Haiti that has found itself in greatest need of resources is the health sector. After the earthquake of 2010 killed an estimated 230,000 people, hospitals found themselves at a loss of both structure and able bodied workers.

Growing up in such devastating circumstances, June wants to use her education to bring healing and hope to those physically afflicted by the natural disasters throughout her country. June says that in the wake of the earthquake and death of a close friend, she realized “I needed Jesus in my life because it is so short.” A Young Life leader for five years before she was selected for the Developing Global Leaders program, she has a strong desire to care for those who suffer. As part of DGL, she is now pursuing a medical degree from Notre Dame d’Haiti. She says, “I would like to specialize in cardiac surgery and have my own clinic one day. I want to help kids even if their parents don’t have the money to pay for them.” June will be the first person in her family to go to college.
