I love music, playing guitar, and writing poetry. The poems are for my country, Haiti. I would like to be a music star, and a accountant, and a scientist. I would like to write songs about the situation of children in Haiti to bring about a change.
Mwen renmen mizik, jwe gita ak ekri pwezi. Pwezi yo se pou peyi a: Ayiti. Mwen ta renmen yon sipesta nan mizik, yon kontb, ak yon syantifik. Mwen ta renmen ekri chanson sou sitiyasyon timoun an ayiti pou pote yon chanjman.
BOOKS BY MARILENE

Story: Jenika's life changed in an instant. One day she lived in the countryside with her mother and ten siblings, and the next she moved with her aunt to the city, where she was promised an education but was instead forced into a life of cooking, cleaning, and despair. The only thing that kept her going was her singing. Read this inspiring tale of a girl who overcame the odds, written by girls who understand her struggle.
Story Behind the Story: Written by a team of young women served by the Restavek Freedom Foundation, Jenika Sings For Freedom aims to raise awareness about the inhumanity and injustice of child slavery in Haiti. At the same time, the books give these young women the opportunity to shape the stories of their own lives with power and possibility and hope.
The young women of Restavek Freedom Foundation are writing books with a mission: to end child slavery in Haiti. They have created two beautiful and powerful children's books raising awareness of this issue, inspired by their own pain and determination to overcome. Learn more.
