Baladodiffusion #13: Francophone Youth

Recorded June 29, 2021

Young Francophones in Canada fight to preserve and especially live in their language. Whether they’re registered in a Francophone school, organizers of French activities, or bringing awareness to causes that affect young Canadians, young francophones are engaged and united in their language. 2 young francophones from very different experiences discuss how they arrived in Kingston, their daily lives, and their fight to preserve French in Ontario.

Hello! My name is Alexane, I’m 17 years old. I was born in Quebec and I moved five times between Quebec and Ontario during my childhood because both my parents are in the military, which helped me build some resiliency. I’ve been living in Kingston for the past five years and I am going to the french public high school Mille-Îles, where I have had the opportunity to involve myself in the community and in my school by being in the student council and participating in multiple activities. During the years 2020-2021, I was the Prime Minister and senior senator of my school which let me represent the student voice and fight for causes that the youth takes to heart. I’m very artistic, sociable and someone who loves to be involved in diverse activities.
