About me:

I'm a student at Champlain College Saint-Lambert. I am organized, determined, and a leader when it comes to day to day life and school life. My skills are I speak French and English fluently, public speaking, mathematics, and cooking. I am more a logical thinker than I am a creative one. I am interested in topics that evolve tourism information about Asian culture, volunteering for organizations in the Montreal area to improve the life standard in our area, and the impact of education throughout the ages. The problems in the world that I would like to see resolved is women's rights, rape/abuse, and animal rights. I am a harder worker and rather work alone with peer-review because I found it is most efficient way to get things done in a timely manner.

This paper demonstrates how it is possible for social entrepreneurship to play a key role in rural development. It draws links between social entrepreneurs, their work, their role in sustainable development, and how it relates to rural development. My findings suggest that social entrepreneurship can be achieved if we consider catering to the basic needs of individuals in the society first. In addition, we must find a development model that works today and does not impede, but rather create, better opportunities for tomorrow.

Throughout this semester, there was one subject that interested me the most; it was the future of employment and the current situation for the employment industry. I have touched on a few topics involving this theme such as labour laws, unemployment, and technology advancement in the workforce. The reason why this issue intrigued me is that soon I will be entering the workforce and I was curious to find out if there will be jobs available as well as the state the work environment.

For my final project, I was able to have the opportunity to speak with Diana Mihaela Baranga the Co-Founder of UpStartED, which is a company hosting the first Youth2Tech Conference held in Montreal. It is designed to introduce youth to the future. The conference will present how technology is shaping the new economy. This conference I feel will fit into what I have been researching during this class which is the issue of employment and how it has been affected as well as how it has been changing.

The world has been changing for the better and the worst. This change is all because of the recent development in the technology sector, where the old methods doing business have almost entirely disappeared with the ability to get information on someone in a second, through the internet. This advancement means that how companies hire and train their employees have changed as well. Now everyone must be cautious when writing online or on social media platforms. For the baby boomers, this has become a negative thing for some.

In large companies, it is a benefit for some to be unionized because this means they’re protected from being laid off or mistreated by their employers. But, being unionized doesn’t mean it makes anything easier for them, in terms of having a fair treatment. Sometimes it means that the workers must negotiate, but when that doesn’t work, they strike!

To take a quote from a recent article from the Montreal Gazette published on July 11, 2017, written by Jacob Serebrin, “A large percentage of Quebecers might be leaving money on the table because they don’t understand the tax system, according to a report released by the C.D.
