I was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and spent part of my childhood there before moving to Miami, Florida. I've stayed deeply connected to my Haitian roots and have always dreamed of making a difference there. That opportunity came after I graduated from Hamilton College with a Bachelor's in Genetics & Social Justice. For my entire college career, my father and I worked on a boutique hotel in Port-au-Prince, which we finally opened in June of 2017. The concept of our hotel, The Princess Inn, emerged during a time that was critical for our family, and for the nation of Haiti at large. After 83 years of vibrant life, my grandfather Sonis Lamur passed away in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in December 2016. Born in the southern commune of Arniquet, he was orphaned at the age of 15 and strove to provide his children with the security and connection to family that was denied to him. To that end, he worked two jobs for 16 hours a day for 20 years, and continued working one of them for the next 15 years. Despite this hard work, he was able to provide only the bare necessities to his 12 children. In the absence of material wealth, he instead chose to impart to them the importance of education, hard work, family, and community. My father, his son, Joseph Lamur, was able to move abroad, where he continued Sonis' legacy of hard work and commitment to family. As natives of Haiti, our family always knew the country to be a place of inexplicable beauty and marvelous, though forgotten, history. After nearly 20 years of living abroad, our family was able to build The Princess Inn. In the same way that Sonis gifted my father these values, my father has gifted The Princess Inn and all it represents to me. I hope to share this gift with you, and invite you to stay with us to experience the past and present of Haiti. We hope to use The Princess Inn as a way to both honor and continue my grandfather's legacy.
