Hello world!

Hello there:

My name is Frandley Julien. I am originally from Haiti, and have been living in the U.S. since April 2006. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida International University  with a B.A. in English. I am currently working on a book whose working title is: “An Alien’s Perspective of America’s Challenges”. In this book, I will share my controversial views on topical issues pertaining to America. For instance, I will demonstrate why the two-party system is no longer working and how it can be fixed, how the Black community is being held back by its leadership, and why the Media is exacerbating the already unbearable polarization of the political climate.

This blog will have three sections:

  •  Social criticism of the United-States (which will be a foretaste of my upcoming book).
  •  Analysis on the Haitian crisis.
  • Literary Analysis (for those who cannot spend a month without rereading Shakespeare, Milton or contemporary authors).
I have been writing in French since I was 10. I have published numerous articles in one of Haiti’s leading Newspapers, Le Nouvelliste, and a piece in The Miami Herald, Diaspora Can Do Much More ( http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/01/15/2017099/diaspora-can-do-much-more.html#storylink=misearch).
I have also won the First and second Prizes in Essay contest at Florida International University’s Annual Honors Convocation, in 2009 and 2010.
I want this blog to be fun and interactive. I will be sharing my views on a regular basis, and hope that you, my readers, will be reacting passionately to my entries.
Let’s agree to respectfully disagree!!!
