I am Danielo Chery, and I am Ncompass.
"I was born into a very large family. My parents needed to lean on the Maranatha House to help raise and support some of their children. I, and four of my brothers and sisters, have since called the Maranatha House our home. While this isn’t the most ideal upbringing for a child, I am making the most of the opportunities set before me.
I really like school. And I am doing my best to study hard to pass my exams.
I tutor some of the younger kids at the Maranatha House, and enjoy taking pictures. You may have seen some on Facebook recently."
Danielo is smart. Really smart. From an early age, we recognized an entrepreneurial mindset in him. He sees the world differently than others in his community. He was one of the first kids at the Maranatha House to learn English, which will create opportunities for his future career path. Last year, he received his Driver’s License, which sets him apart among most other Haitians as one who can legally drive - creating another career opportunity. This Spring, Danielo will graduate high school,and his future is bright. And while many of his peers have traditional dreams of becoming a doctor, or teacher, or business person, Danielo longs to be a DJ -- “DJ Hadly Mix” to be exact. And among the determination to for success lies a tender heart that believes in the potential of every individual. “I think it’s just a part of life to help anyone if you can. When you help someone, you will get back what you give.”
