Yveline Molin is the perfect representation of a genuine Haitian. She was born in Port-au-Prince and moved to Atlanta, GA, where she lives today. Yveline doesn’t have specific role models other than her family, but she admires people who know what they want and fight for it. “A person that’s able to come from the bottom and still go for a dream and achieve it, inspires me. No matter the industry. I always think, if they can do it, what’s my excuse?”
Yveline admits that growing up as a Haitian and moving to the States confused her identity. As she says, mixing traditions and cultures can sometimes result in an identity crises. “You’re trying to figure out who you are in both cultures, while the faint adult voices of your parents are lingering in the back of your mind.”
But the culture clash didn’t stop Yveline from adapting, forming clear goals, and an even clearer understanding of who she is and where she needs to go in life.
Education, Work, Accomplishments, and Goals
Yveline Molin graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations and Advertising from Liberty University. She’s currently working as an actor and executive assistant in a corporate environment. She’s used to this type of work, but is aiming higher. She hopes for a breakthrough in the entertainment industry that will allow her to expand her acting skills, which would give her the most satisfaction.
She already has the experience to come with it, as she’s worked on several TV shows and films, so it’s no surprise that she hopes to start producing and writing her own films as soon as possible, preferably within the next year.
Yveline also hopes to become a role model for young Haitians who lack a clear direction in life. By doing so, she hopes to motivate them and help them focus their energy in the right direction.
A View of the Future
Yveline has many passions and talents, including photography, event planning, and writing, and she hopes to grow her skills in these areas as soon as possible. And that’s not all. Yveline believes that if her abilities and skills can improve her life, she can also use them to improve the lives of those around her.
As a Haitian, she focuses on Haitian communities plagued by poverty and lack of opportunity, as these places need the most help. And she’s already making tangible steps in this direction: “My husband and I mentor and teach youth and young adults at local Haitian churches. Giving back is always an option, as is bringing our resources and talents to the communities around us.”

Yveline would also like to have an online platform she can use to convey her message, which she says would be imbued with calls to faith and self-improvement. Yveline hopes to present her content through her own cultural lens, because, above all, she’s Haitian through and through.
