Before moving to the States, Aliette enjoyed an idyllic childhood in the Bahamas. But life changed abruptly when she became pregnant at 12 and married at 13. Written off as a teenage mom and high school dropout, Aliette made a discovery that would change her life again: faith.
With God - along with the power of prayer - Aliette surmounted obstacles that would have imprisoned her in poverty and ignorance. She worked hard for an education, ultimately building a successful career in medicine. She worked hard on her marriage, today celebrating more than 30 years together while raising three terrific sons. And she continues to work hard, every day, for the betterment of the world around her.
For Aliette, a change in perspective transformed her destiny through faith in God and oneself.
