2017-06-27 Dave-Juno Robas

Dave-Juno Robas

A student committed to changing his attitude and behaviour in order to pursue his dream of higher education

Sometimes all it takes is one small trigger to turn a potential dropout into an actively involved and high achieving student. For Dave-Juno Robas, this trigger was football. In a period of just a few years, this student at Curé-Antoine-Labelle high school, who had a high record of absenteeism and was constantly failing in French and mathematics, has become someone who aspires to start pursuing higher education studies as early as next fall. And it is his resourcefulness, resilience and ability to meet challenges that have made all the difference. To continue to be in the football concentration program, he had to put in twice as much effort, taking summer courses and receiving tutoring during the school year in order to obtain the extra credits he needed. Dave-Juno fully deserves this achievement, all the more so because he also has to work in order to personally pay for the costs of his sports activities.

Abderrahmane Atri

A student committed to helping his family get through a terrible ordeal caused by illness

Nothing is worse for a family than to see illness surreptitiously encroach on their daily lives. A year ago, Abderrahmane Atri’s family was hit by this bitter blow of fate and as a result the life trajectory of this student at École d’éducation internationale de Laval went totally off course. As the eldest child, Abderrahmane must now contribute financially to help meet his family’s needs. And because this forced him to change the way he manages his time, he has to work twice as hard to keep up the pace at school. Far from seeing this as a burden, Abderrahmane instead seizes every opportunity to take on more responsibilities and give of his time to his community, while making it his duty to support his little brother in this time of adversity. Even though he’d have every reason to slow down, Abderrahmane perseveres, repeating to himself that brighter days lie ahead.

Marwa Mashael

A student committed to rebuilding her life in a new country after experiencing the hardships of war

Marwa Mashael was only 7 years old when, living in Syria in the grip of civil war, she was first exposed to fear, anguish, poverty, hunger and vagrancy. This life lasted four years. When she arrived in Québec in 2014, a whole new world opened up to Marwa, but she also faced the daunting challenges posed by a new language and culture. At the tender age of 11, she had only one goal in mind: to successfully integrate. She was first assigned to a reception class where, after just a few months, she gained a good enough command of French to give a presentation about her native country and participate in discussions. Conscientious and motivated, Marwa then managed to get accepted, thanks to her efforts, at Dorval-Jean XXIII high school where she continues to make progress and now even cherishes the dream of setting up a student committee to support newcomers in the reception class.

Marie-Maude Painchaud-Bergeron

A student committed to making her brothers and sisters, as well as her academic success, one of her top priorities

Because of a special family dynamic and as the eldest child, Marie-Maude Painchaud-Bergeron very quickly had to take on the role of mother to her brothers and sisters, and therefore sometimes had no other option than to neglect her schoolwork. But thanks to her loving and helpful grandparents, Marie-Maude found the strength to persevere at Monseigneur-Richard high school despite the tremendous challenges. By asking her teachers for help, attending remedial classes and staying strong, Marie-Maude has managed to maintain enviable grade averages in certain subjects and improve in others. Moreover, sports and extracurricular activities have allowed her to further demonstrate her tenacity as well as providing her with an alternative way of occupying her mind. She is not only a member of most of the school sports teams, she was also her class representative and volunteers at special events.

Kushala Allken

A student committed to triumphing over a degenerative disease and graduating from high school

When she first arrived at André-Laurendeau high school in 2011, Kushala Allken was enrolled in transition classes due to her learning gaps. This coming June, if everything goes according to plan, Kushala will successfully complete her secondary education. For her, this is a tremendous feat because she suffers from Morquio Syndrome, a degenerative disease which for Kushala results in a decrease in muscle strength and, over the years, has led to numerous hospital stays. Despite frequent absences from school, Kushala has always shown steadfast determination in her studies. A true fighter, she has never let her illness get the better of her academic success, taking advantage of every available remedial class in order to maintain the pace. And today, her greatest dream is to become a paralegal.

Daniela Brito Morales

A student committed to never again allowing her learning disabilities to take over her life

Daniela Brito Morales was born in Colombia and for a long time attributed her learning difficulties to the fact that she was a newcomer here. When she began high school however, the reasons behind her many setbacks finally came to light: dyslexia, dysorthographia and attention deficit disorder. This Saint-Laurent high school student immediately began receiving assistance adapted to her specific needs and gradually began to improve her grades and regain confidence in herself. It was almost as if a new Daniela had been born. She persevered, caught up in her schoolwork and became more open to others. She also decided to join the school soccer team to release the surplus energy that was affecting her ability to concentrate in class and began exploring various extracurricular activities by becoming a member of the student council, the student radio and both the green and sports committees.
