About me:

I recently took a year off to travel and volunteer, since then, my perspective of the world completely changed and so did I. I feel that I can now adapt to almost any situation, I enjoy meeting new people and am very easy going. As of the skills I developed during my twenty years of life, I can now speak three languages: French, English and Spanish. This summer, I have been certified as a deep scuba diver, that definitely made me more aware of the consequences of pollution on the marine life. I am also trying to avoid cooking with any animal products while keeping my meals tasty at the same time, which makes me try new recipes all the time. Traveling also opened my eyes to different issues. I am very concerned about the life conditions in certain areas of Africa and the power and duty that the media has to make things change. I feel the same about the role of the media towards the Canadian Aboriginal population. I believe that journalists play a key role to influence the public and, therefore, the governments.

On my free time, I either travel, hike a mountain, play soccer, sing, or do all of that!

Over the course of the semester, I have always been particularly interested in social issues related to human rights. Specifically, most of the topics that I chose to write about were related to Aboriginals in Canada. In 2017, in the developed country we evolve in, I still cannot believe that some people are not equally given the same opportunities as the rest of the population.

On average, Aboriginal people in Quebec are less well educated than all Aboriginal Canadians, who are themselves less well educated than all Canadians. In Quebec, the proportion of Aboriginal people is almost three times greater than elsewhere in Canada, and a larger proportion of First Nations people lives on reserves. The poverty among the Aboriginal people is increasing in Canada. This meaningful issue is one of the main cause of school dropout of the Aboriginal people.

Written by Shuaib Almosawa, Ben Hubbard and Troy Griggs, the article ‘It’s a Slow Death’: the World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis”, published in the New York Times on the 23rd of August 2017, sums up the deadly collateral consequences of a war that seems to be never ending. In Yemen, the war has been lasting since the past two years and a half. The two parties, one led by the Saudi coalition and supported militarily by the Americans, and the other one, the Houthis and their allies, both affirm that they will never give up until the other side does.

On August 24 2016, an earthquake killed 295 people and injured almost 400 in the city of Amatrice, in Italy.
