Assemblywoman Solages participated in the Solidarite Haitiano Americaine de Long Islands (SHALI) 4th Annual Youth Forum. The purpose of the event was to inspire Haitian-American youth with positive and prominent Haitian-American role models.
Assemblywoman Solages said, The youth hold such a special place in my heart. It is important that we continue to inspire, motivate, mentor, and serve as positive role models to the younger generation. I hope that by sharing my story and experiences as a New York State Assemblymember, I am able to encourage other young Haitian Americans to make a difference in their communities and possibly run for an elected office one day.
