Josue Jean was born in Jacmel, Haiti in 1991 and lives with his mother and little nephew. His mother washes clothes, working 2-3 times a month and earns less than $5 a day. In 2005, at age 14, Josue came to ACFFC and started school for the first time. Just after the earthquake, ACFFC began a first mosaic public art installation, Josue shined as a leader, despite his natural modesty and shyness. As the mosaic program grew, Josue not only became a skilled artisan, but also took on more and more leadership and responsibility. He now works on ACFFC commissioned projects and travels with Laurel True, when she has mosaic installations to mount elsewhere in Haiti.
