What’s your dream? My dream is to travel the world, as vague as it seems; I envision immersing myself in different world cultures and fluent in their languages. This isn’t just about sightseeing; it’s about forging meaningful bonds with people from diverse backgrounds. Through these encounters, my horizons will expand, and I’ll gain a deeper understanding of humanity. Ultimately, these experiences would allow me to understand the empathy and interconnectedness that bring forth true strength in our world.

Name a francophone event that you particularly liked and tell us why. At my elementary school, the Carnaval de Quebec was a cherished tradition, where firetrucks, class drop-ins from Bonhomme and class parades enlivened the jubilatory spirit of camaraderie. It was a day where the roles of ‘bûcherons’ and ‘bûcherelles’ were celebrated, fostering a sense of community. The event was a vibrant showcase of the Quebec French-Canadian heritage, eagerly awaited by all.

Why you can’t wait to take part in the FNJA? I’m thrilled to immerse myself in a week of enriching workshops and cultural exchanges and meet with fellow enthusiasts to honor and lead the future of Canada’s vibrant legacy of bilingualism.
