Prince Edward Island and Southeast New Brunswick
katelyn gill2Katelyn Gill grew up in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and, presently, studies at the Université de Moncton in New Brunswick. Due to her experiences in both provinces, she is fully aware of the significant impact this event will have on the host region.

“The Congrès mondial will be the ideal occasion for us Acadians, particularly those on Prince Edward Island, to celebrate and affirm our identity. This will be the opportunity to display our inclusiveness and rich cultural heritage.”

On the organizing committee, Katelyn assumes, with pride, the role of youth representative. She is convinced that the Congrès mondial will highlight Acadie’s traditions as well as its modernity.
