Thanks to Canada Summer Jobs, youths in our riding have the opportunity to live professional experiences. Over the next few weeks, we will share with you a number of those stories.
Ariane Arshinoff, graduate from Bishop’s University in Liberal Arts (Fine Arts) and Climate Change works for Uplands Cultural and Heritage Center. She’s in charge of the house’s garden. It’s with a great deal of enthusiasm that she shares her experience in the indigenous garden created for the 150th Anniversary of the Canadian Confederation and from her learnings taken from the artist Ena Greyeyes. In her work, she applies permaculture and her artistic thought to beautify the landscape. She is quite proud to love the “Uplands dream”!
Today, we are meeting with Stefanie Fournier, a psychology student at Bishop’s University, who works for Lennoxville Community Aid. Convinced that seniors have a lot to impart on us, she has discovered her aptitudes for this realm. Her work revolves around walking groups, community meals and awareness workshops. Her unerring motivation and her beautiful personality have made her a valued person from those with whom she accompanies.
