Picture of The Day: FIU Graduate Elcana Jean-Pierre

FIU Student
Elcana Jean-Pierre is a Haitian-born student with Cerebral Palsy.  She migrated from Haiti to Miami on a boat, not without hardships: her family was intercepted by the coast guard and they stayed at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base for 2 years. Finally in Miami, Elcana struggled with bullying throughout school… but she had her eyes set on a career in social work. She graduates today with more than a handful of accomplishments on her belt. Elcana is truly #WorldsAhead. – Via Florida International University Facebook Page
