Boereau is a student in "International Trade". "A fellow student encouraged me to take part. She helped me fill out the form, register on the web and after a month, I was called to attend the first hearing which was held in the capital," said Claude remembering his debut in the competition.

"I always watched the show in previous years because it is very popular here, I had to take Intensive Chinese to participate. In fact, my biggest obstacle is to compete in a language that is difficult, I've learned for just one year." "More than 5,000 people were interviewed," continued Claude.

"After the three knock-out stages, 36 were selected for the sixth edition of Super Idol. Now I'm already among the 15 finalists and I'm too happy with this great result," said Claude to the Haiti Press Network.
