Join author and editor M.J. Fievre as she shares her journey of growing up in Haiti, moving to the United States, finding the courage to live as you are, fighting stereotypes, and flourishing in a world that often times tells you NO.
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, M.J. Fievre moved to the United States in 2002. She currently writes from Miami.
M.J.’s publishing career began as a teenager in Haiti.
