I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Fredericton, New Brunswick. I have an older, twenty-year-old brother named Oliver who has now been living away from home for 5 years in order to pursue his hockey career. Given these circumstances, we still remain very close and continue to communicate every day. With my mother being French and my father English, they wished that I would grow up bilingual. That being said, they chose to enroll me in the local French school, École Sainte-Anne, which I attended from preschool all the way through to grade twelve. Growing up, I always had a house full of dogs. I currently have two Brittany Spaniels named Abbe and Molly, and also a Yorkshire Terrier named Sophie. My parents divorced when I was only 6 years old, and I believe that their separation had an immense impact on why my brother and I’s bond is so strong. My father remarried Louise, an elementary school teacher in New-Maryland. Louise has two daughters: Erin, who is twenty-one years old, and Sarah, who is fifteen years old. At first, I was not a fan of the idea because I felt as though she was attempting to replace my mother, and I was afraid of losing my father to the new members of my family. I eventually came to terms with their relationship. In fact, it benefitted me in the grand scheme of things by making me an extremely independent young-woman. During my years spent in the school system, I was very much in love with sports. More specifically, volleyball.

Something I was particularly proud of was being selected as the president of Best Buddies last year. This was an incredible experience and I made numerous lifelong friendships. Goals If you take the time to get to know me, you will learn that I am ambitious. My short-term goals would be to do well in my first year of university. “Doing well” in my opinion consists of obtaining an A to A+ average, this will give me a good base for the upcoming academic years. Moreover, I would like to become more confident when speaking in front of a large group. Lastly, in the long-run my goal is to obtain a Masters in Business which will hopefully allow me to acquire a well-paying job. With this job I hope to be financially stable to start a family. Most importantly, I would love to live a long, healthy, and happy life.
