Cassie Exume

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
I enjoyed going to Saut D'eau with my parents in Hinche (my father's hometown) where my Grandpa used to live. I enjoyed the stories Grandpa would tell me. Best Grandpa ever!

What according to you is a true friend?
At 11 years old, I taught Sunday school at church to 5-10 year olds while living in Jacmel. It has always been a dream of mine to continue teaching others.

How do you handle criticism?
Because of political problems in Haiti, we moved from Port-Au-Prince to Jacmel. It was difficult for me to move from where I was born to a town with no friends. The hardest part was not saying goodbye to my friends.

When was the last time you tried something new?
I realize how important it is to speak english when I went to Jamaica. I went with my older sister to Jamaica. It was my first trip outside of Haiti. It was interesting to go there and meet black people who spoke another language and who had a different culture. It was a memorable experience and now I want to travel everywhere.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I come from a wonderful family. I am the third of five children and I know what it is to be taken care of and how to take care of others. There was no shouting and fighting in my family. After dinner we would all gather together and my father would read to us or tell us stories and then put us all to bed. I am so fortunate to grow upon such a family.
