Success Story: Joey
Meet Joey, or Dr. Joey, that is! Joey is one of Espwa's successful alumni. He came to Espwa when he was 13 and once he finished secondary school, went on to pursue medical school in Port au Prince. Seven years of med school later, Joey is now a certified doctor and serving at the public hospital in Les Cayes. He hopes to come work in the Espwa clinic soon, to give back to the community that helped him achieve his dream. Joey says without Espwa giving him access to an education, constant encouragement, and some financial support to get him through med school, he would not be who is he is today. Joey is living proof that any dream is possible for these kids, with the help and generosity of people who care. We wish Dr. Joey the best of luck as he pursues his career!
