How Pier-Nadeige arrived at French for the Future
Born in Montreal, Pier-Nadeige moved to Toronto at the age of fourteen.  She went to both French and English high schools, before returning to Quebec to pursue a degree in French Literature at the Université de Montréal.  After graduating, she worked within several cultural companies, most notably Cirque du Soleil and the Royal Ontario Museum. 

Becoming bilingual was, for her, truly life changing and it is therefore with great pleasure that she joined French for the Future, where she helps promote bilingualism, a cause very dear to her heart.
