As i said about loran scholarship: the conversation with laura doyle limilou

We're here at the Student Life, and we've just been congratulated

We had the opportunity to speak with Laura Doyle Péan of CEGEP Limilou in Québec, QC. They are the Secretary of the Board of Directors of the TCLNQ, which is responsible for the Month History Month in Quebec. Plus, they're in the connection for EULMC Linolou. I have specific questions for them, but I started by asking them to tell me about myself and my decision to apply for a scholarship

I'm a 19-year-old non-binary student from Quebec. My father was born in Haiti and my mother in Quebec from an Irish family. I am currently studying communication and cinema at CEGEP, and I will be in law school next year

One of the projects that I am most proud of is my participation in creating a local WUSC committee in my CEGEP. At this point, I am the liaison manager and representative of this committee, who has mobilized almost $44,000 to fund two refugee students and has allowed them to move to Canada, to become a permanent resident and to pursue post-secondary education. We met the first sponsored students last August, and the next one will arrive this summer. We help them navigate the various resources available in the community, find jobs, etc., and raise awareness about forced migration. There are now more than 80 local committees in the post-school town in Canada, but our school was one of CEGEP's first employees (from Lévist-Lazon) to sponsor the student. I want to inspire other schools to join the movement and students in my school to participate in this process

In addition to this project, I also serve as Director and Secretary to the Board of Directors of the de Concertation du Mois de l' Histoire des Noires de Québec (TCLNQ, or the Concertation Table for the Black History Month in Quebec City). A month of black history is held every year in February. Our work is to coordinate the various activities carried out within a month. This year we celebrate the 390th anniversary of the arrival of Olivier LeYuna in Quebec City, the first black person in Canada and one of the first students in our history

I am also a DG of my school newspaper and a member of the LGBT community, women/feminist and political/mobilization committees. Finally, I work as a librarian, I'm a dancer

Some of the things most important to me are equality, social justice and performance. I feel that every vote must be heard and heard. Everyone should have access to great education. No one shall be discriminated against on account of their race, religious beliefs, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, gender, origin, physical restraints, etc

I applied for a scholarship because I felt it was a good tool to push my contacts further and to have a greater impact on society. Moreover, I had hoped that he would provide a visual picture of the projects I was working on and inspire others to pursue their passion and use their abilities to work in a world where everyone felt safe, represented, respected and listened

In order to answer this question, it is important to first determine success. For me, success does not necessarily mean good grades, but, most of all, love for what you do and feel that you are doing the right things. Once you get it, nothing can prevent you from achieving your goals, no matter what happens. If you do what's right, then everything will be the same. This requires hard work, dedication and patience. It won't always be easy, but sooner or later it will work

With regard to what needs to be changed, I think the school should be more accessible. This is not so bad in Quebec, but in other provinces it seems very expensive. Everyone should be able to learn. Education is an excellent tool for empowerment. It enables people to act on the issues they care about and influence policy. Second, I think the school system should be less focused on productivity and more on progress, which allows students to grow at their own pace. The Scandinavian and especially Norwegian system is a good model that we should emulate

First of all, give yourself time! Find the deadlines for the scholarships you want to apply to your application and start working with them as soon as you can. Besides, asking for help is not a scam! Ask the other people to read what you wrote and tell you if it makes any sense. Be sincere. Then, if you sign the criteria, apply. You have nothing to lose

Finally, he told us not less than 200 times over the weekend in Toronto and almost became a gag, but it's like you yourself. This is not an interview or a competition. Interviewers don't try to deceit you, they just want to know you. Try to get to know them and the other candidates, and you'll have more fun

For your readers in other provinces, let me explain: since I live in Quebec, I am currently a student of CEGEP. I finished high school almost two years ago. That's why I'm in post-education

The transition was pretty simple for me. I knew what I wanted to do for a long time, because my work in society allowed me to learn and to reflect a lot about myself, my dreams, my aspirations. When I got to CEGEP, I knew two or three people in my new school, tops. Nevertheless, I took part in six committees the following week and made many friends. In order to meet new people, it is necessary to take part in such events. You're building a strong sense of community

What I would like to say to the students who graduated from high school and were nervous about the future: I finished high school almost two years ago, and I was very sad to leave school. I still miss him sometimes, but some of my teachers have become close friends, and I still see my friends from school on a regular basis, even though we're not in the same school anymore. We spent a new year together, and we were in a new year, and we celebrate all birthdays

This is the new chapter of your life, in which you begin your life, and even that you may be sad about it, that I fully understand, because I have too, cherite the beautiful memories that you have, and I rejoice in all the great situations that you will have for you in the future. Don't be afraid to make any mistakes in your way, since they are not nothing but learning opportunities. You don't need to know right now what you want to do in thirty years. He can change. It might be, and it's totally fine. You can go back, try new things, learn, grow. You don't have to do one thing, it's quite normal to have a few interests

Look at me, I'm two years in a movie and a movie, and I'm going to law school. All these interests are part of you, which you must accept and celebrate, but you are not afraid to get out of your comfort zone and to explore what you've never thought before

I want to publish my first book and join the WUSC local committee at my university. I want my legal degree, and then work at the international level, which works on human rights issues, be it LGBT rights, refugee rights, women's rights or others. I would then like to offer my time to the local organization and to work with victims of domestic violence or immigrants. This is one of many scenarios I mean, but I am fully aware that it can change

I also think about studying criminology and psychology, so we will never know what future might be. For the most part, I want to use my skills to continue to do what I have done for the past seven years: to protect human rights and to work with marginalized communities to help them expand their opportunities and help them control their stories and stories
