Katty Antoine is a 30-year-old distribution logistics employee. Born in Haiti, she and her family immigrated to New Jersey when she was young. She currently resides in Washington state with her husband of five years.
Both hailing from Croix-Des-Bouquets, a town half an hour from the capital, Port-au-Prince, Katty met her husband during her first visit back to Haiti in 2010. The couple recently traveled to their homeland, as they do every few years to visit family.
While there, they took a domestic flight to Cap-Haitien in the north of Haiti, where they enjoyed the beaches in Labadee, explored historic UNESCO world heritage sites, and spent several days relaxing at the Royal Decameron Indigo Beach Resort in Montrious. Though often overlooked, Katty says Haiti is an ideal island destination with lots to explore.
