There is absolutely pain, malnutrition, unjust living conditions, corruption, and poverty, BUT the joy shines that much brighter in the midst of chaos. I believe it's time for all to stand witness to this.

It is so jarring and beautiful to be welcomed into a new walk of life, to experience Haiti through the hopeful and joyous eyes of young people, eager for knowledge, waiting for the opportunity to change the world as we know it.
