About mmichellederosier

As a freelancer, I have written for online and print publications with a focus on the shared and distinct American experience of Black immigrants and Black Americans. As a member of the Haitian diaspora (made in Haiti and bred in Brooklyn), I'm committed to snatching back the Haitian narrative. I want to present an assortment of unique Haitian experiences that are overlooked in mainstream conversations. It's important to show that our life stories can be painful, yes, but also brilliant, interesting, quirky and fun. I'm starting with the Happy Harper children's series. The first book forthcoming 2019. Also, forthcoming 2019 is my first book, Ruby Bridges: Get to Know the Girl Who Took a Stand for Education. This is part of Capstone's People You Should Know series for 3rd and 4th graders. Professionally and personally, I am driven to ensure that youth and women of color with limited resources have access to opportunities for success and the support system to leverage them. I love partnering with others to do the same. I have 12 years demonstrated experience successfully engaging diverse communities of individual volunteers and teachers, schools, districts, non-profits and community partners, as well as corporate donors.

In Christ Alone

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENtL_li4GbE

Absolutely love these lines:

No guilt of life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
