“When I was growing up in Haiti, I listened to stories while someone played conga drums. Now it is me playing the sacred rhythmic congas and telling the story of how I came from being plain, parentless and poor to becoming a practicing neuropsychiatrist in the United States.


I am bringing the Haitian art of sacred storytelling to Broward, starting with my own story, which has become the book, Twelve Unending Summers.
