My name is Ivair Chantre, son of Felicia Gonsalves and Mario Chantre, born in the Cape Verde Island on August 2nd, 1982. I am currently being raised by my mother and living with my two sisters. The oldest is 19 years old and studying Journalism at Rhode Island College. She just finished her first year. My other sister is 10 years old and in the fourth grade. I came to the United States on February 28th, 1997 with my older sister to seek a better education.

My senior year is already finished and next year I will be attending Stonehill College located in Easton, Massachusetts. I am undecided in business, but with major interest in the Stock Market and Management.
