My-Taelle does a clown routine in front of a group of children..My-Taelle is 10 years old. She lives with her mother, two brothers and four sisters. Her father left the family home. My-Taelle in in fifth grade. Like many other children in Haiti she wasn't able to go to school following the 2010 earthquake. She was happy to be back at school when a temporary classroom was set up because this seemed like normality was returning to her life. "I dream of becoming a clown. I'll be able to make other children happy. Many people were sad after the earthquake because they lost family members or their houses. I'm glad that I can make people laugh.".
