Francesca Désulmé

Outreach Coordinator

(She/Her)

Grab a blender.

Add creativity, open-mindedness & positivity. Set it on high. You now have a taste of what it's like to know Francesca. As she grew up in Haïti, Francesca developed a strong desire to see positive changes happen in her community. She soon found out that not all actors in power, nationally or globally, were truly citizen-focused.

Wanting to "blend" her desire for change and her passion for communications, she pursued a diploma in Communications and International Development at the Université du Québec en Outaouais and a Graduate Diploma in Public Relations at McGill University.

Francesca dreams of a world where each of our intersectional identities could coexist in harmony with a preserved environment. During her free time, you can find her enjoying nature, creating artistic projects and spending time with family.

"I learned about Apathy is Boring at a youth elections viewing party. The concept attracted me instantly and I fell in love when I learned the organization was BY youth and FOR youth with a purpose to encourage more of us to engage in our society. Now, I not only share my values with the org, I also get to work there! Talk about hitting the jackpot!"
