"Coming to Telfer was an obvious choice to me: it was close to my family, and it allowed me to pursue my studies in French. What I did not expect, however, are the many opportunities to enrich my post‑secondary journey and to prepare for my future career.
In high school, I participated in Place à la jeunesse, which allowed me to discover the various clubs and other extracurricular opportunities available here. It was clear to me that I wanted to get involved on campus this year, so I applied for the position of Co‑president, Place à la jeunesse. This incredible opportunity brings me joy and will surely have an impact on my academic journey. I am looking forward to seeing what my next two years at Telfer will bring."
