Meet Wisemene Cajuste – One of the Winners of Knowledge of the Day Challenge

For Black History Month, Student Government Association (SGA) held a Knowledge of the Day Challenge for a week to inform and try studentsknowledge of historical events and people.

Meet Wisemene Cajuste, one of the winners for the event. Wisemene has her own story of achieving the American Dream. In 2015, her mother moved the family here to join a cousin who had settled in America. Although the United States is called “The Land of Opportunity, Wisemene misses her native Haiti. What she misses most is the food, moderate temperature all year long, and living at the coast. In 2017, she joined Robeson Community College to attend the English as a Second Language Program. Wisemene progressed into the Adult High School Program and graduated as Salutatorian of her class in 2020. She is very proud of her accomplishments and is currently in the prehealth program for practical nursing. Wisemene aspires to return to her homeland or possibly move to Cuba to serve as a nurse. She wants to help those stricken with poverty and feels they could benefit from her services.

Congratulations to Wisemene and our other winners, Sheunna Council, Saereen Mistica, Kristi Simmons and Latesha Brandon. Thanks to all for participating in our Black History Month Activity.
