Hello guys,
                I am feeling "HONORED" to be a voting member of HOT. Many
thanks to all of you specifically Jaakko, Kate, Boris for this good work.
  In short, my HOT story is"

First of all,  I am Alce Samuel
Paul<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:ALCE_Samuel_Paul>,
born in Port-Au-Prince, currently living at Delmas, I worked for the first
time  with HOT in 2011 after the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010,
then, i worked as local coordinator (twice) of two projects with HOT in
Haiti. Saint-Marc<http://hot.openstreetmap.org/updates/2012-02-20_hand_over_in_saint_marc_haiti>and
Cap
Haitian<http://hot.openstreetmap.org/updates/2013-04-02_starting_osm_in_cap_haitien_haiti>.
I've done most of my mapping work in Haiti and Dominican Republic (My
mapping <http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?ALCE%20SamuelPaul>), I also worked in
the translation of LearnOSM
Creole<http://fr.flossmanuals.net/openstreetmapayiti/ch020_kek-zouti-pou-edite-sou-osm>.
I work very hard to make Haiti the most complete map OSM ever seen we have
in the world.

Really happy to be an HOT voting member. Thanks once again guys!
