Nastazia Coirin '13: Empowering women in Haiti

MAJOR: International Business - Entrepreneurship
MINOR: International Affairs
HOMETOWN: Port-au-Prince, Haiti
PATH:  Building leadership opportunities for women

Women in Haiti have few opportunities for leadership in the business world. Nastazia Coirin '13 is out to change that.

In this video, Nastazia, of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, discusses how her courses at Bryant and her work with the University's Gertrude Meth Hochberg Women's Center positioned her to return to Haiti to help women achieve more. Immediately after graduating from Bryant in May 2013, Nastazia was invited to an international women's conference in Bangkok. There, she attended a training session that focused on ways to help women develop as leaders. Meeting with empowered women from across the globe helped her develop plans for her work in Haiti.
