Chrismate's dream is to master many different forms of jewelry making because she relates creativity and quality products with the development of opportunities for herself and her family. She is married and has one child who originally inspired her to work.
"I want the best opportunities for my son, so I've enrolled him in one of the best schools in Carrefour (town 30 minutes away). While he studies I set up my work space in the courtyard of the school and make jewelry... parents of other children watch me with curiosity and I feel proud to tell them what I'm doing. We need more companies creating beauty in Haiti to show the world how special we are. I'm not just supporting myself, I'm changing the reality of my family/community."
