Yvonne Mpwo has joined the Haiti Cultural Exchange as our new Program Manager.
Yvonne shares a few words:
“I am inspired by the various forms of storytelling within the diaspora. Haiti Cultural Exchange, an organization deeply embedded in its community, has provided a platform for the Haitian community to tell their stories. I am grateful for the opportunity to supplement and develop programs rooted in cultural interconnectedness and support for artistic expression.”
