Diana Aziz

Student in graphic design

I am a final-year student in UQAM’s bachelor of graphic design program. Prior to that, I earned a double DEC in natural sciences and plastic arts at Collège Montmorency. I also studied psychology at Université de Montréal for 18 months. During my bachelor’s degree, I have specialized in illustration, and I discovered a new passion – animation – through which I can combine all of my previous studies with my love of illustration to create impactful projects. Currently, I am illustrating a poster for a play, my first professional contract in the field. I also won a LUX award and was selected for the Sommets du cinéma d’animation.

Marianne Bourdages

Student in communication (interactive media)

I am currently studying interactive media at UQAM. I am passionate about creation in all its forms – stop-motion animation, video, programming, drawing – nothing holds me back. Curious by nature, my projects stand out for their creativity, diversity, and excellence. In my spare time, I also love to do improv and give an extracurricular improv course for elementary school students.

Jonathan Gagnon

Student in communication (interactive media)

Born in the small town of La Baie, in the Saguenay region, I began my higher education studying multimedia at Cégep de Jonquière. During those wonderful years, I also played a lot of music, alone with my guitar or with my clique of rockers. After a few semesters in natural sciences, I ultimately decided to return to my original passion: digital creation. However, my region offered few opportunities for specialization in this field, and so Montréal became my home. As I turn 25, I embark on my second year in UQAM’s interactive media program.

Louise Hammouda

Student in communication (journalism)

A native of France, I am a final-year student in UQAM’s bachelor of communication (journalism) program. I am curious and interested in both culture and societal issues such as the environment and human rights. During my bachelor’s degree, I participated in the feminism news show Sans dentelle on CHOQ.ca and co-produced audio reports for the student radio station.

Andréa Henry-Etesse

Student in environmental sciences

After two years studying filmmaking in Rennes, France, I finished the last year of my bachelor’s degree in the United States at the University of Oklahoma. This enriching experience led me to take a year off to reflect on my professional orientations and aspirations, and during this break in my studies, I worked at several different jobs. I then started a master’s degree in communication in Nice, France. In my first year, I wrote a paper about the place of women in science popularization, and my growing interest in environmental issues led me to focus the second year of my master’s on sustainable development. While I was perfectly content at University of Nice, I decided to apply for a university exchange with UQAM in order to encounter yet another new way to learn and a new culture. I am currently finishing my master’s degree by writing a thesis on “collapsology” (the study of the collapse of industrial civilization) and population resilience from a communications angle. In July 2019, I will start a final internship in sustainable diets with the NGO Équiterre.

Marie-Blanche Rossi

Student in graphic design

Like all of us, I have a little pot of skills and experiences that I take care to stir each day. It contains a great deal of thoroughness, hard work, and knowledge – all acquired during the master’s degree in ecology I completed during my initial years of study. I recently added a key ingredient to my personal recipe: passion. Being passionate about one’s future work is priceless, and this exactly what I feel now, as I complete my bachelor’s degree in graphic design. Along with my energy and natural enthusiasm, I unrestrainedly mix in all of my knowledge and regularly add my favourite spice: curiosity.

Gabriel Turcotte-Dubé

Student in communications (video games and gamification)

Curious, hands-on, and eclectic, I have spent the past decade alternating between jobs in video-game design – especially mobile games – and studies in cinema, journalism, translation, and sociology. With a view to combining my interest in game creation and my penchant for analysis and criticism, in September I will be starting a master of communication (video games and gamification) degree to better understand the game industry and how it relates to the public. In addition to video games and social causes, my interests include the arts, travelling, and my two cats.
