Elizabeth Cauvin Capstone
Welcome to Haiti. My name is Elizabeth. I am a young Haitian-American lady. For my capstone, I decided to do something that will help me figure myself out as an individual. I also did this because I wanted to broaden up my knowledge about my culture. I was not born in Haiti, but my father decided to relocate himself to the United States to start a new life for my mother and her two sons at the time. After a year a two without the love of his life, my father was stable enough to bring his wife and two sons to America, so that they can get the better education and opportunities they deserve. Being as though, I was not born in Haiti I wanted to do something that will better help me connect with my culture other than speaking the language, creole, frequently. There are two parts to this capstone, the first part is a research paper on the country Haiti and my father’s journey to America. The second part is the mini course I taught. In my mini-course, “Welcome to Haiti”, I taught the students games that my parents would play as a child, I taught them basic conversations and numbers 1-10 in Creole and had them listen to Haitian music.
