I had planned to write why Develop Haiti matters. But it’s 12:30am and with the exception of going to the gym, baking a chicken, eating and going to the bathroom, I’ve been working on the site all day.
Some folks in social media and someone I met at the February UNA Haiti meeting reached out to me today. Tomorrow I’m going to a fundraiser for a Haitian school. And I’m hitting a party afterwards (I deserve it)
In turn though, I’m also asking people for help. I can’t do this alone. At certain points throughout this week I’ve sat back and wondered, What the heck have I gotten myself into?
I don’t doubt DH though. I’m sure it’s going to grow and I’m sure I can grow it. But I wonder about how I will balance it all and earn a living, too. Working class immigrant kids don’t go to good schools to become entrepreneurs. We go to become the first doctor, lawyer or investment banker in the family. Silly me. I must not have gotten the memo.
