    During these challenges, there's a message of hope that Fritznel shares with us, particularly aimed at the youth of Haiti. He encourages them not to be defined by current disadvantages but to seize the power of education and independent initiative. Through these means, Fritznel believes, the youth can overcome circumstances and become agents of positive change.

    So, join us on this enriching journey as we uncover the layers of Haiti's history, the resilience of its people, and the potential for a brighter future. Without further ado, let's dive into this fascinating episode with our esteemed guest, Fritznel.
