Women + Partners
It takes a village.
Jessica Drogosz, Founder + Director
Jessica has spent five years in the photography industry, finding and expressing her voice through lifestyle, family, and wedding photography. Her unique and relational style of photography has drawn a large client base in the Chicago area and throughout the United States. Jessica received her bachelor’s degree in photography and a master’s degree in art education. Driven by a desire to live every day with purpose, Jessica seeks meaning in life and art in everything she does. During a trip to Haiti in 2015, she saw a need for young Haitian women to be equipped, empowered, and given opportunities for their voices to be heard.
Renise Jean, Co Founder + Manager
Renise is 21 years old and in her final year of high school. Sa Voix was created from her voice around her dreams and goals for her life. For Renise, Sa Voix exists not only to help young women find their voice, but to also create jobs for young women in Haiti. She believes what Sa Voix is doing in Haiti is unique and wants to see that continue. Renise wants to encourage other young women to do one thing each day to help them achieve their dreams. She believes that you can find a way for your dreams to positively affect others, that you can choose to discover how you can help others through your own dreams and goals.
Our Designers + Makers
Dieunithe ClayonneDieunithe is 19 years old, in her final year of high school, and is employed by Sa Voix. Dieunithe lives independently and has dreams to be a secretary. Currently, her goal is to help other women in our program learn to sew as she moves toward executing Sa Voix’s administrative work. For her, family is the most important thing in her life outside of work, as it provides her money to not only satisfy all her needs but help her support the needs of her family as well. For Dieunithe, Sa Voix is about teaching people, it’s about helping people learn how to survive for themselves through life skill education by employment. She believes by teaching other women what we do at Sa Voix we can help them find a way to live on their own and with our teaching for other woman we all can make Sa Voix grow and go forward, together.
