Cynthia was born in Haïti but was adopted by wonderful loving parents at a young age. She's moved a couple of time due to her father being in the military but has called Ottawa home for the past 14 years. She received a BA in Social Sciences with a minor in Psychology from the University of Ottawa in June of 2017. Cynthia has gained experience by volunteering and worked as youth assistant with the Orleans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre. Working with pre-teens, teenagers and young adults, she discovered that she enjoyed working with them but mostly getting to know them. She has joined the Youth Ottawa team and believes that every youth deserves to have their voices heard and should be able to have equal opportunities to make a positive change within their communities.
