On Black ownership and carrying on entrepreneurial legacy:
Cyriaque: My grandparents in Haiti owned their own business, so I have a very entrepreneurial spirit that was instilled in me from a very young age. My paternal grandmother owned her own convenience store and my maternal grandmother used to raise and sell livestock. Then, when I had my son it lit a fire inside of me. Having kids changes your perspective on things. I want to be able to pass something on to him and be an example to him of what hard work brings. I think it’s really important for minorities to have ownership and be able to leave something for their kids to inherit. I don’t want my son to have to struggle the way I did to get to where I’m at. I want him to understand the value of hard work, but I also want him to be taken care of.
