Ralf Etienne BA ’16

I founded Eyeglasses for Haiti, a nonprofit that is providing eye care to the people of Haiti. We have collected well over 20,000 eyeglasses and screened 1,500 patients. My experience here at Anderson University with faculty, students, and in classrooms has greatly contributed to what I’m doing now and what I plan to do in the future.
