Gefte (pronounced Jeff T) is one of our new college residents. Gefte is a citizen of Haiti, but has hopes of getting American citizenship.
Most Haitians have to go to another country if they wish to go to college. And this was the case with Gefte.
Back in Haiti his mother works in sales and his father works at a hospital. While in Miami he got encouragement to attend firefighter training.
Geftee also plays soccer for Newman University to help with the bills.
