The Lady from Haiti

I must say, out of all the ‘People in America’ videos I’ve produced, this has to be the most inspiring and emotional one! I had the absolute pleasure of spending some time with Melody Bales, also known as The Lady From Haiti. She has lived a life serving and helping others in need, especially the Haitian nation. Melody says, “Happiness is a treasure that I own and I like to share my treasure somehow in my life.” She has a boutique in Naples, FL called “The Lady from Haiti” where she sells Haitian artwork and handmade crafts. The store is named after her daughter, Rachel, who Melody adopted from Haiti many years ago. Watch and listen to her amazing and inspiring story in my latest episode of ‘People in America.’
