Who is Kréyol?

Revolutionaries... The Kréyol woman is not bound by generational or ethnic backgrounds. She is simply one who lives boldly and walks in her purpose.
People often ask “why the name Kréyol”?
“Is it just a Haitian thing?”
The influence behind the name is of course our Haitian heritage. However, when one looks into creole elements, we find that there are so many people from different parts of the world that consider themselves to be of this culture. Our food, music, customs, style, struggles and strength are very similar. It matters not that you are from Haiti, or New Orleans, or Cape Verde, or Brazil- we all see life in colour.
Kréyol represents vibrance, colour, resilience, boldness and above all… strength. It is an idea that speaks to us all, no matter where we come from or what we look like. We all know pain and struggle, victory and joy. That is what Kréyol represents.
