Jesmy lives with his parents in Orianie when he is not staying at the HDA. He has three brothers and sisters. In the past, he went to a different school for the deaf, but he was not able to adapt so his brother brought him to the Haiti Deaf Academy. When he first arrived he knew no sign language at all but we are proud that he is learning and adapting very well. He has a great attitude, loves to play with the other deaf children and enjoys living at the HDA.
