I am a proud francophone from Alberta currently living in Québec City where I will be completing my International tourism studies this year. My love for tourism and travel comes directly from visiting our great country from coast to coast to coast. Canada is an incredible country with it’s plains, mountains, lakes, forests and most importantly its people and it is my mission to share and promote Canada everywhere I go. As a Global Vision ambassador and a Global Vision Grad, I will be going on my second trade mission with Global Vision this summer. I plan on going to Germany for my end of studies internship and complete a bachelor’s degree in sustainable tourism and international tourism management at the Griffith University in Australia. I’m looking forward to meeting and working with inspiring youth from all over the to promote Canada abroad.
I am currently in my second year at the University of Ottawa, studying Political Science and Public Administration. I am involved in various organizations that work to promote youth civic engagement. I have had the opportunity to represent my community on numerous occasions including as a Delegate to The United Nations Youth Assembly in New York City, at the Arctic Youth Ambassador Caucus in Iqaluit, Nunavut, and most recently on the Junior Team Canada Trade Mission to Lima, Peru. I am looking forward to the opportunity to connect with other Ambassadors while working towards Canada’s 150th Anniversary celebrations.
Hi! I am going into my third year of a double major in Economics and Political Science at the University of Alberta. This year I was selected to the Artic Youth Ambassador Caucus in Iqaluit, NU with Global Vision – it was incredible learning about life in Canada’s North first hand. This is my second NYAC, and this year I am excited to be coming to Ottawa as a Global Vision summer student. I can’t wait to share and learn with all of the other ambassadors! See you all soon!
I have a bachelor in International Studies and Modern Languages from Université Laval in Québec city. Early on I had the opportunity to live in different cities and to learn about Canada’s involvement abroad. This is what triggered my interest for international relations and more particularly social entrepreneurship.
As multiculturalism defines and makes the strength of our country, I would take this opportunity to create a multicultural festival in which many local businesses as well as communities may express their culture in various ways such as food, music, games, art, films and much more.
I’m currently studying Health Science at the College de Maisonneuve in Montreal. I’m an active member in my school association and many programs around the country promoting science, innovation and leadership. I founded the BOOM Scientifique, a science organization, to promote STEM and leadership.
I strongly believe in the success of ‘’Boots to the ground’’ experiences and I hope to support and help student all across Canada to get the opportunity to live meaningful and life experiences through Global Vision’s programs and missions.
In the last few years, I had the opportunity to represent my province in many events, conferences and competitions. I want to support young people with motivation, passion, leadership and communication. Since the beginning, my motivation to make our world a better place is growing every day. I firmly believe that Global Vision’s programs are one of the ways to support young leaders to make a difference in their communities, in our Canada and our world.
My name is Julia and I am a 19-year-old international student from Berlin, Germany. Spending a year in Gatineau as an au pair is a great cultural experience for me. With Global Vision I was able to take part in the Arctic Youth Ambassador Caucus in Iqaluit, travel to Peru as a Youth Ambassador on an International Trade Mission and attend various Roundtables across Canada. These exceptional experiences sparked my interest in international relations. Next fall I will start studying at the French university Sciences Po in a trilingual Political Sciences program.
My name is Justice Eashappie; I am a political science student studying at the First Nations University of Canada entering my fourth year. I am a proud Aboriginal youth leader. As a member of Global Vision’s First Nations Youth Engagement Team, I will help engage First Nations youth and help them by giving them the opportunities that as young youth leaders they deserve to increase their skills and experience. Aboriginal Youth deserve to have a voice in matters that affect them. As a member of the Engagement team I want to give them the skills and abilities they need to stand up for what they believe in. I want to give them the skills they need to be on the International stage.
I am a fourth year student at the University of Guelph completing a double major in Biology and Psychology. I love connecting and helping people work together and want to use these skills to support sustainable businesses. Growing up in a small town I spent my time exploring farmers fields, canoeing, and tackling road trips across Canada. Our landscape and diversity is like nowhere else in the world and I am so incredibly proud to call Canada my home. As a Junior Team Canada Ambassador in Peru I partnered with the Ontario Agricultural College investigating food economics and the agricultural system. Through my involvement with Global Vision I have been forced to grow more than I ever thought possible. I can not wait to continue this adventure meeting and working with inspiring youth from across the country and abroad.
I’m entering my first senior year at Centennial Collegiate Vocational Institute in Guelph, Ontario. As a JTC Graduate from the 2016 Mission to Peru, I’m excited to continue my journey with Global Vision, and give back to this organization that so greatly impacts the lives of youth every year. I’m a firm advocate of causes through the medium of arts, whether it be through design, film, or photography. Holding several media management positions with some of our nation’s best non-profit organizations, I’m ready to apply my skills on a platform that has such a great impact on our nation’s economic and social well-being. With an abundance of pride for not only Canada’s deep-rooted heritage, but also my Chinese background, I’m excited to collaborate with a team that represents Canada’s multiculturalism and diversity so well.
I recently completed my International Baccalaureate program in the health sciences profile at Champlain College, and I will attend MEI Academy in the upcoming year. Within this program, I will travel abroad in several countries in Asia and Europe where I’ll be learning the economic, historical and cultural background of the countries visited. I would like to pursue an education in actuarial sciences, economics and finances.
Outside the academic environment, I’m involved within my community. I cofounded a non-profit organization, export•support, and participate in various sports events. I’m also a soccer referee in Centre-du-Québec.
I will be taking part in my second trade mission to China with Global Vision. I’m looking forward to represent Canada and my region abroad and continue the work accomplished for my local partners.
