Werley Nortreus was born and raised in Haiti. He was born in Limbe, near Cap-Haïtien, but he was raised in Port-Au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. He grew up in Haiti with his families and he went to Haiti's most expensive and respected schools only. Unfortunately, on January 12th, 2010, he survived and experienced an earthquake that he will never forget for the rest of his life on this earth.

"I was a survivor, I didn't lose families and friends, but I will never forget that day for the rest of my life.", said Werley Nortreus.

The 26 years old believe that God has a plan for him because he survived an earthquake that killed thousands of people across Haiti. He is lucky to be alive today and he believes God saved him so he can accomplish something for humanity. Even when he didn't lose families and friends during that earthquake, his heart is still suffering from sadness and pain because that earthquake killed thousands of people and destroyed cities across Haiti. Unfortunately, he will forever remember that day, and the sadness and the pain that he's suffering from will never go away.

"I wish I could change the past because no amount of money and no amount of fame can bring back those who died on that day. Unfortunately, the sadness and the pain that I am suffering from because of that deadly earthquake will never go away for the rest of my life.", said Werley Nortreus.
 
According to Wiki, the 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake, with an epicenter near the town of Léogâne and approximately 25 kilometers west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital. The earthquake occurred at 16:53 local time on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. It caused major damage in Port-au-Prince, Jacmel and other cities in the region. Notable landmark buildings were significantly damaged or destroyed, including the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly building, the Port-au-Prince Cathedral, and the main jail.

Among those killed was Archbishop of Port-au-Prince Joseph Serge Miot and opposition leader Micha Gaillard. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake. Death toll estimates range from 100,000 to about 160,000 to Haitian government figures from 220,000 to 316,000, although these latter figures are a matter of some dispute.

The government of Haiti estimated that 250,000 residences and 30,000 commercial buildings had collapsed or were severely damaged. The nation's history of the national debt, prejudicial trade policies by other countries, and foreign intervention into national affairs contributed to the existing poverty and poor housing conditions that increased the death toll from the disaster.

"To me, the month of January is the saddest month of the year.", said Werley Nortreus.

During an interview with Werley, he came to the U.S. from Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that destroyed Haiti. He graduated from high school and college in the U.S. before he moved to Canada in 2017 after the TPS struggle with Homeland Security. The U.S. wanted to deport the immigrants with the TPS status but thanks to Canada and other countries that open their doors to receive everyone, no matter their race, background, and color. Before he moved to Canada, he accomplished a lot in the U.S. and he's grateful for everything he learned from the U.S. over the past years.
Werley is now the CEO and founder of Ceraphin Corporation, a mass media company that he founded in 2015. He's also the CEO and founder of several other businesses and media organizations, including radio stations.
