Proud Hatien

This article got to me. I am a haitien young lady and I have been asked many times the same question.

Most people don't beleive me when I say that I am Haitien.

It is becuase I am caramel, educated and pretty that the only way that they know I am Haitien, is when I speak Creole.

All I have to say is that I am proud of my roots and not afraid to admit it.
