Haute-Aboujagane, New Brunswick
Born in Moncton, I have lived in Haute-Aboujagane, in southeastern New Brunswick, with my family since my birth. I am a grade 9 student and attend high school in Shediac, NB.
I was born with a medical condition called 3M Syndrome, which is a type of dwarfism. In order to educate the public and young people about 3M syndrome, my sister and I wrote the book Two young people of small stature: Anything is possible! in 2015.
In 2018, I was one of the lucky Young Citizens winners for my "Pascale Poirier" project. In 2019, the Francophone South School District recognized me for my prize. I was president of the student council in 8th grade at the primary level and this year I am 9th grade representative at the secondary level. In 2017, I received the Youth Prize of the Beaubassin-est Rural Community.
As a sports fan, I have a great interest in sports. I participate in para-athletics in the following disciplines: wheelchair shot put and discus, as well as sledge hockey. I participated in the Acadian Games in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 editions in para-athletics where I won several medals. In addition to sports, I love nature, doing family activities, mountain biking and snowmobiling off-trail. I also have an interest in Canadian history and political issues.
