Your Mark on the World readers chose Haitian social entrepreneur and publisher Daniella Jacques as the Changemaker of the Month. Daniella is a powerhouse who seeks to empower women by sharing news by, about and for them–giving them relevance in places where they’ve never had it before.
Watch my interview with her to hear her story in her own words.
Daniella has recognized from her earliest memories that women face challenges in the world that men don’t face, don’t understand and seem not to care about. Women are often not even in the room when men do talk about their issues.
She says it is time that women were part of the discussion. She launched Women’s Dophen News to be a platform for news relevant to women, not only in Haiti but around the world. She is already publishing in four languages, Haitian Creole, French, Spanish and English.
My take: Daniella Jacques will change the world and her name will become very familiar.
