Fanm Mòn’s photo
March is here. It’s time to celebrate every woman who has ever lived and those who have yet to come. (We celebrate them during the other eleven months too).
One very interesting woman you must know about is Sophia Demirtas. She is the owner and creative designer of Fanm Mòn. She creates the most fantastic “tribal” jewelry you will ever see. She has a bright smile, and a fierce look in her eyes.

Former Haitian President René Préval has died, his wife Elisabeth Delatour Préval confirmed to the Miami Herald. He was 74.
Préval, who was president during Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake, died at home in Laboule, a neighborhood in Port-au-Prince. His wife, who wasn’t with him, said she had spoken to him “three times” Friday morning. The cause of death has not been confirmed but friends close to him say it was likely the result of a heart attack.
“He was in excellent humor,” said Delatour Préval, who is traveling. “He asked, ‘When are you coming home?’ I refused to believe it. I cannot believe it.”
Préval served as president from 1996 to 2001, and again from 2006 to 2011. He is the only president in Haitian history to have served two full presidential terms and not be jailed, exiled or killed.
