Ready to Run the Family Bakery: Boulangerie St.  Antoine

I was born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts, and spent much of my time in a small, traditional Haitian bakery, Boulangerie Street Antoine, owned by my parents. They started the business 22 years ago, right around the time I was born. My mother, with just a high school diploma, and my father, with an associate degree that he earned in Haiti, gave it their all from the start and are still running a successful business to this day.
