As a woman of Haitian descent, her strong desire is to shift the focus from the island’s devastation and poverty to its creativity and resources. Fun fact: Johanne is known for destroying song lyrics. “I try,” she says, “but I have a hard time getting song lyrics right.” For Johanne, to have dinner with Jesus, Oprah, Michael Jackson and Cardi B (“all at the same time,” she insists) would be amazing.
