With the help of  Ciné services, the film division of Artists Institute in Jacmel, Haiti, we are creating a new video profile series where we learn a little more about our students and their lives outside of the Academy and give them an opportunity to share their personal stories, dreams, and aspirations.

Our first subject is Rosias W., a super talented sixteen year old singer-songwriter and 11th grader at the Academy for Peace and Justice.  Rosias lives with his four siblings and looks up to his older brother who he describes as the important person in his life. Rosias loves Gospel and R&B. Below is an original song about the daily struggles of living in Haiti and the beauty that prevails that Rosias performed this year  at the opening ceremony of the third wing at the Academy for Peace and Justice. We are so proud of Rosias and his positive attitude, creativity, and leadership. Rosias has such a bright future ahead and we can’t wait to see where education and music will take him. Stay tuned for the full video!
