It’s not how you start....

It's how you finish.

Before moving to the States, Aliette enjoyed an idyllic childhood in the Bahamas. But life changed abruptly when she became pregnant at 12 and married at 13. Written off as a teenage mom and high school dropout, Aliette made a discovery that would change her life again: faith.

With God - along with the power of prayer - Aliette surmounted obstacles that would have imprisoned her in poverty and ignorance. She worked hard for an education, ultimately building a successful career in medicine. She worked hard on her marriage, today celebrating more than 30 years together while raising three terrific sons. And she continues to work hard, every day, for the betterment of the world around her.

For Aliette, a change in perspective transformed her destiny through faith in God and oneself.

"Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition, he or she has overcome to reach his/her goals.—Dorothy Height

The Lotus Flower


The lotus flower grows in some of the most peculiar circumstances. It grows in the muddy pond with little sunlight. However, despite the environment, the lotus grows and becomes a beautiful flower. The lotus represents courage, determination, and strength. 
This analogy symbolizes the human spirit, signifying that we, too, like the lotus, can grow from the most peculiar circumstances displaying a beautiful masterpiece.
As stated throughout my story, it's not how you start but how you finish.
