Marie Michele was born in 1991 in the town of Grand Hatte. She is the youngest of three children. In 1997, after the death of both of her parents, Marie Michele was brought to the orphanage. For the past 17 years, the orphanage has been the only home she has known.
Marie Michele, due to her parents having been poor and illiterate, is the first member of her family to have had the opportunity of going to school. Once she started her secondary studies she became extremely motivated and focused on her future. She dreamed that a university degree in nursing would become a reality.
From that time on, she never wavered in her determination. She is the only one of her cohorts to have successfully completed secondary studies and after was accepted to the four year nursing program at Notre Dame University of Haiti. Marie Michele successfully completed her first year of nursing school in 2014 and is presently a second year student.
