“I was born in Brooklyn in 1989 but was raised in Montreal & Haiti. At the age of 14 I was diagnosed with bone & lung cancer- I was given 3 weeks to live but beat the odds with an experimental drug and luck. Surviving cancer came with a price; I had my right leg amputated. Today I walk with a prosthetic leg along with two forearm crutches.
At 17, I traveled to Costa Rica and have never been able to get rid of the traveler’s bug. Since then, I have been to 25 countries throughout 5 continents.”
