About Joshua

I am Joshua Benoit. Born in Brooklyn, New York on 12/20/1988. My parents, Marie Francois and father Delinor Benoit were Haitian immigrants that migrated to the USA in the late 1970’s-80’s. They then were introduced to each other in Brooklyn, New York in the early 1980’s. My father came to the USA prior to my mother back in 1978. He moved to a small apartment on Flatbush, right next to my mother’s father, that’s where the connection came. Being that my mother’s father aka ”my grandfather” lived right next door to my father. They took a liking to each quickly, and since they both migrated from Haiti, my grandfather would often say to my father ”I have a daughter still in Haiti around your age, and she would be perfect for you” Over the course of a few years, they became extremely close and finally when my mother came from Haiti it was a perfect match! It’s like my parents were meant to be. They wasted no time, they dated for few months and in 1982 finally tied the knot! Two years later in 1984 giving birth to my brother, Jonathan Benoit and fast forward four years later giving birth to me. I spent my early years in Brooklyn and Springfield queens. Due to my life-threatening asthma that was easily triggered by cold weather, we had to get out of new york fast! So all four of us made that move in 1995 to Florida and I’ve been living here ever since. I fell in love with my passion for business and fitness at an early age.
