High School: Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf

What did this entrance scholarship mean to you as an incoming student: Being selected breathed renewed confidence in a vision that excites me: making coding as accessible and impactful as possible, which I strived to accomplish through organizing coding events and student government. At the same time, I became more self-conscious to orient my work and energy to help people around me; whenever I worked on a project, I’d always ask myself: how can I make this beneficial to people around me?
Next week, on April 22, you will meet another Marianopolis student who has received financial support and recognition from the College.
