Thanks to a passion for communications and political science, Vanessa Exama obtained a bachelor’s degree in those fields from the Université de Sherbrooke. As someone proud of her background, she has embraced her multiple identities. She is a Canadian who is an Acadian of Haitian origin and a Quebecker—and considers herself first and foremost a citizen of the world.
Her time as a communications advisor in East Africa solidified her interest in international cooperation. In Quebec, she is involved in promoting intercultural understanding and helping people who are unhoused.
