My name is Jolie. I am African-American and Haitian. My dad is from Port-au-prince, Haiti. He moved to America at 8 years old and has lived here ever since. My mom was born and raised in Harlem, New York. I was Born in 2005. I live in Brooklyn, but I’ve only gone to school in manhattan. Now attend Harvest Collegiate. One of my pastimes is to listen to music or go see a musical or travel when I have time. I’ve been to Brazil,Canada, and Florida . I haven’t experienced any personal loss but I have lost relatives. I am lucky to have 4 siblings, a good family, and the opportunity to get a higher education.

Dear Jolie,
Your very lucky you get a chance to be apart of a higher education. I’ve always wanted to travel so I think its cool you got to go to places outside of the country.
