While we were walking in the town of Jacmel, with an old friend, now a psychologist in Miami, we saw a boy of about six years of age.  He had a deformation of his legs, so that he could not stand up straight.  When I saw him, I asked my friend if he could help him.  He said he could not, because this was not his field of expertise, only a therapist could help the boy.

With that answer, I immediately proposed to my friend that he help me financially after my high school studies, I knew that I was going to learn how to be a physical therapist, to help my country. After the earthquake, I had even more motivation - to give everything I have to the advancement of health care in Haiti through this profession.
