Michele Jean-Baptiste


Michèle Jean-Baptiste, a first generation Haitian, is Jaku Konbit’s secretary. Her journey with JK began 15 years ago at twelve years old with the Saturday leadership program, eventually leading to volunteering, drumming, summer camp management, and many more enriching African and Afro-Caribbean centred projects.

She credits Jaku Konbit for instilling a sense of positive self-image and cultivating a love of helping people which ultimately led to working for the municipal library.
