2015 Embassy of Spain Bursary for OMLTA Member REVISED


Mes débuts au sein de l’OMLTA-AOPLV fut grâce à une collègue qui m’a incitée à participer à la conférence du printemps 2003 et de devenir membre du conseil d’administration de cet organisme. Quelle apprentissage et que de réseautage que j’ai faits depuis ces débuts. Somme toute, mes meilleurs souvenirs seraient: le discours de Stephen Lewis lors de la conférence de printemps 2003; la danse et la musique de Perspectives Educho dans la salle d’accueil au 12e plancher du Double Tree les vendredis au courant des congrés printanniers; mon premier concours d’art oratoire durant lequel j’ai eu l’honneur de jouer le rôle d’interrogateure; la nature et l’ambiance lors de la conférence d’automne à Collingwood en 2009; et les amiités que j’ai développées avec les nombreux membres du conseil d’administration de l’association et les connaissances et amitiés que je continue toujours à développer avec les délégués aux conférences ainsi que les membres de l’Association. Merci à tous et toutes de m’avoir si bien accueillie et de m’avoir donné de belles occasions d’épanouissement personnel.
