My Future Endeavors

In June, my friends and I are planning to visit Europe from the 8th to the 23rd. This trip, while being a good time off, is also a perfect opportunity to absorb a whole plethora of new inspirations relating to my craft.

After CEGEP, my plan is to start work full-time with a design company situated in Montreal. Although CEGEP has taught me many things, I will learn a lot more about this profession by working in the field.

My goal is to take all the knowledge obtained through my education and apply it in real-life scenarios. For the first couple of years, my work within a company will help me define my work path. It will help me figure out my niche and my true passion in the industry. Admittedly, I am a bit shy when meeting new people. However, once warmed up to the new environment, I can be a real asset to the team as I am hard-working, passionate and willing to learn.

Eventually, in a few years, once I figured out my career path. I would like to go back to university to hone in this line of work and perfect it.


I have been always been creative. Throughout my youth, I would constantly be drawing, cutting, folding and gluing. This creativity was not as present in my every day daily life in high school, but I still cherished it. At the end of high school, like many other people, I was stuck choosing what to study. I ultimately decided to follow my heart and do what I’m passionate about. What I can see myself doing for the rest of my life.

I am open to any job opportunity; I know that I am passionate about this career and that I am motivated to learn and grow and become a great designer.
