“Cap Haïtien” A Paradisiacal Town (Part 1)

 

Cap Haïtien A City where everyone Can Live and spend wonderful Moments.


Mag Blog Decided To Interview some citizens in this town. Let’s begin with Maxim Laroche ( @HaitiUncut) who’s a professional photographer.

 

Mag Blog : To start tell me more about you.

MaximMy name is Maxim Laroche and I was born in Port-au-Prince at Hopital Canapé Vert in 1986. I grew up in Cap-Haitien playing with homemade slingshots, marbles, and spin tops. Fishing became a passion at an early age and I continue to do so very avidly these days.

Being raised in Haiti really gives you a different perspective on life and when I went to highschool stateside, that factor became ever more prevalent. The general foreign  perception of Haiti is AIDS, poverty, and garbage.

This wasn’t the Haiti I knew and I always felted compelled to change this negative perception.

Mag Blog : When did you start photographying ?

Maxim : I started photographing in the 9th grade after taking a photojournalism class. Taking pictures and recording moments became a fascinating hobby which I continued on till today.

Mag Blog : Did You think to leave Cap Haitien one day?

Maxim : I have never thought to leave Haiti until all the recent election issues and coming to the realization that my generation got dealt a shitty hand of cards. The 80s generation was born to dechoukaj, embargo, and all other sorts of political turmoil. As a maturing adult, it is a difficult decision to make wether or not you want your children to experience the continued hardships that come with life in Haiti.

Mag Blog : Why Did you choose Cap Haitien?

Maxim : I didn’t choose Cap-Haitien. I am the 9th generation of my family to be born and raised in Northern Haiti. I pray that one day my children will be the 10th.

Mag Blog : Now Tell me something Cap Haitien Learned to you.

Maxim : Okap is an astounding place with lots of beauty to offer. If you open your eyes and know where to go, whether it’s the people, the beaches, or our historical sights your always in for an amazing adventure. Respect and courtesy are one of the benchmarks that make this a great place. If you say sak pasé/ bonjou/bonswa and flash a genuine smile, you’ll get the same in return and be safe wherever you are.

Raquel Pélissier

 

The Miss Universe 2016 Was held in philippines And our dear Raquel was delighted to present our country which is Haiti. Steve Harvey could not do without the fabulous answers that she gave him.

 

There is the Last question that Steve asked To Raquel : Name something over the course of your life that you failed at, and tell us what you learned from that experience.

 

Raquel Said : About 7 years ago, I survived the earthquake. I feel I was failing myself because I was not living my dreams, I was living day by day in that earthquake, it was a bad event, but I choose to be a very positive person and learn a great lesson from it. Because if I am here today, it’s because I am living my dreams.

 

This epic answer has touched everyone.

 

Raquel Thanks for you courageous talent and thanks for representing your country.

 

We Love You.
