Sara Carole Theus
My name is Sara, and I am 29 years old. I was born in the south of Haiti, in Les Cayes, but I grew up in Delmas, which is a community in Petion-Ville. I have two sons, Lenz and Kerby, Lenz is 12 years old, and Kerby is 7 years old.
It took a long time for me to finish high school, I was 27 years old when I finished. While I was in school I had a lot of dreams, like going to university. When I realized it would take 4 or 5 years for me to finish university, and I wouldn’t have any money or a job, I saw it would be very difficult for me, because I have a responsibility to my children. I am taking a communications class now, that also teaches us how to make sandals, and I will finish in December.
My dream is to go to hotel management school, because I see a lot of hotels being built in Haiti. This means it would be easy for me to find a job quickly. I have experience in cooking, but when you don’t have a diploma or professional papers for a skill, you can’t find a job. It is for this reason I want to go to hotel management school, so I can learn management and cooking to have a legal paper. With this training, it would be possible for me to submit my resumé to some hotels.
