FINALISTPERSEVERING STUDENT AVENIR

Marie-Claude Cormier

A student committed to overcoming her academic difficulties by staying focused

For Marie-Claude Cormier, perseverance is equivalent to never ceasing to forge ahead regardless of whether the road is a smooth or arduous one. And for her, the road has been far from smooth. Marie-Claude suffers from dyslexia and an attention deficit disorder and therefore has to work twice and even three times as hard to do well in school. But nothing will detract her from her goal of graduating from high school! Her target is crystal clear: to succeed, no matter what. And she draws her inspiration from her mother, who went back to school at the age of 30. Her secret to never giving up? A promise she made to her grandmother: that despite her difficulties at school, she would never drop out.

Rosemarie Lévesque

A student committed to talking openly about differences in order to eliminate taboos

However, despite all this, Rosemarie is an outgoing person who knows how to surround herself with the right people, drawing her energy from her relationships with others. Strongly resolved to attain her goal of one day pursuing studies in the visual arts, she gets involved on all fronts because for her it’s a way of achieving a balance in life.

Laura Belzile

A student committed to taking control of her life and offering the very best of herself

Laura Belzile has had her fair share of upheavals in life. As a teenager, the many conflicts with her parents almost pushed her over the edge. She was then diagnosed with a benign brain tumour and this led to bouts of deep depression and serious drug addiction problems. But Laura has unbelievable inner strength. To get out of her situation, she sought help, from addiction counsellors among others, and today, at the age of 17, Laura lives on her own and supports herself. Determined to graduate from high school and then eventually pursue university studies, she knows that there are brighter days ahead.

Olivier Lachance

A student committed to tackling his problems with a positive and constructive attitude

From the moment he started high school, Olivier Lachance had to make sustained efforts to not only do well at school, but also be accepted by his peers and integrate into his new environment. Olivier suffers from Ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay, a hereditary progressive neurological disorder. In order to avoid failing at school, he has to work countless hours and spare no effort.

For Olivier, the way to overcome problems is by tackling them head on.

Louka Bouchard

A student committed to persevering and forging ahead thanks to hockey

When he was only 2 years old, Louka Bouchard was diagnosed with leukemia and then, when he was in second grade, he was given the awful news that he had dysphasia. This learning disability, which primarily affects his ability to understand, made school all the more challenging and Louka had to repeat Secondary 2. At the age of 14, it was then type 1 diabetes that was added to the mix. But despite everything, Louka continues to believe that you must never give up hope. And he owes this determination to succeed to hockey, a sport he started practising at the age of 7. He has played in the midget league since 2016 and, with the help of a teacher, even set up a hockey team at school. “I still don’t know what kind of career I want to pursue, but it will definitely have something to do with hockey!”
