Who Are We?


Jemima Laurent, Co-Founder, Board Member

Jemima Laurent is a Haitian-American, born to parents whose native tongues were French. As she navigated through the transition from high school to college, Ms. Laurent faced the challenge of assimilating to the American culture while keeping true to the Haitian culture. As an undergraduate student at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Ms. Laurent majored in Psychology and Communications. She then went on to graduate school and obtained her Masters in Social Work from Yeshiva University. During her graduate career, Ms. Laurent was able to explore the social and emotional health challenges parents and children face as the transition is made into adulthood. As the co-founder and CEO of College Lingual, Ms. Laurent hopes to help students and parents similar to herself navigate the transition into college.
