At 8 years old, I wanted to find a new species of bird never seen before in Canada. Looking back, this was a pretty naive objective, but my passion for ornithology has not weakened at all since then. Now, my desire to study the fragile but oh-so impressive Arctic ecosystem pushed me to do my MSc on nordic seabirds at McGill University. Who knows? There may be a bird that has yet to be seen in the vast territory of northern Canada? Or maybe not... better keep working on my MSc.
