Erika embodies the “blind courage” that her grandmother modeled over forty years ago with her immigration to the US from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Erika’s grandmother went on to start a nonprofit for homeless youth in Haiti – an organization that provided Erika with unique work experiences, and also created a burning desire to groom youth for leadership. Blending her creative skills with the power of information and the wisdom of knowledge, this highly-focused and energized woman seeks a degree in Management of Information Systems. As a single mother raising two young daughters, as a daughter caring for her mother and grandmother, and as an entrepreneur running a home-based photography business, Erika is powerfully motivated by her need to be relevant and contribute something to the world.
