Meet Attania Jean-Funny, a proud southern girl who hails from the lovely community of Lake City, FL. Her journey to the United States began at the age of three when she emigrated from Haiti, accompanied by her father.

Thanks to their care and encouragement, she never felt like a motherless child and was able to pursue the American dream with determination.
