More about me:
Naomy Grand'Pierre is a Haitian American 21 year old born in Montreal, CA and raised in Atlanta, GA by her Haitian parents. She is the oldest of 5 children.
 
She began swimming competitively at ten years old for her club team, the City of Atlanta Dolphins. She got recruited to swim for the University of Chicago in 2015 where she is currently a senior Psychology major. Naomy started competing for Haiti in 2015 where she was a member of the first ever Haitian Swim Team which competed at the CISC Championships in 2016. Naomy became Haiti's first female Olympic Swimmer when she swam the 50m freestyle at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Since the Olympic games, she has helped recruit seven new members to the Haitian National Swim Team and formed the first ever Haitian Youth Swim Team who competed for the first time at the CARIFTA games in 2017. In 2018, Naomy won Haiti’s first ever gold and silver medals for the sport at the CCCAN Games. She is currently the national record holder in the 50m free, 100m free and 50m fly. Outside of the pool, Naomy has been working on raising awareness and increasing participation in swimming in Haiti to lower the drowning statistic. She is also passionate about spreading a more uplifting and positive perspective of Haiti. Naomy has been recognized by the City Councils of Atlanta, Miami and New York, Radio Canada, The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Reader, The Chicago SunTimes, The Haitian American, and The Haitian Consulate of Atlanta and Chicago for her work. She is also the youngest inductee into the Haitian Round Table’s 1804 List.
 
Naomy plans on finishing her college degree in March of 2019 aspiring for a future career in Marketing Strategy. While developing the Haitian National Swim Team with the goal of qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games she hopes to inspires Haitians all over the world to learn the importance of swimming and embrace the history of Haiti with pride and dignity.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil588@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless

Stella.
