LiteWork Events originated as a vision to create an Urban Socialite Network in Boston. What better way to build on this vision than to highlight some of Boston’s most dynamic urban young professionals and socialites! Check out our latest feature, and hopefully you’ll also catch up with them at our next event!
Where are you from? Cambridge, Ma
Alma Mater? Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, Some College
What brings you to Boston? My parents came here from Haiti. My father was very proud to be Haitian living in the States, and made sure he never lost ties with his country. Watching and hearing him as a youth lit the same fight in me.
Tell us about yourself (What are you passionate about? Any side hustles?):
For the past 4 years I have worked as a consultant for Madison Park Development, The Central Square Theater and Northeastern University. I’ve also previously served as a Program Manager for Discover Roxbury, an organization which advocates for the preservation of Roxbury’s historic and cultural assets while also seeking to overcome racial and class stereotypes as well as the lack of knowledge about the community.
I’m very passionate about visual art, and for the past 5 years have hosted a visual arts event called “Arts in the Park” to bring attention to our very talented local artists. I recognize visual artists as scribes of our culture, and feel the need to support them in any way I can.
A good percentage of my projects have also been around Haitian history and culture. I feel as some one living in the third largest Haitian populated city in the US I have a responsibility to progress our culture. All of my passion for this comes from my father!
What’s one thing we should know about you? My hope is to make sure Haitians are recognized as the good, solid people they are and get all the resources they need to succeed in a city like Boston/ New England.
And there you have it folks… #followthelite!
