“I never expected that the work that I do daily would be worthy of the Caribbean Impact Award. Like almost
everyone, I strive to work hard and to have a positive impact on my community. The principles of working hard and
giving back were instilled in me by my parents, who, like me, immigrated to the US from Haiti.
“My service in the US military and my association with mentors, friends, and colleagues over the years reinforce
those principles. To the extent that I am worthy of this award, it is because of the community that surrounds me.”
Alisme had to say about being a Caribbean Impact Award honoree.
