Jourmae plans to complete a Bachelor of Arts in French Studies with a specialiation in French literature with the hopes of attending Law school at the Univeristy of Ottawa in the future.

Each year, French for the Future assigns a different essay topic for the National Essay Contest. This year's topic was "How did fake news change your relationship with the media?".

Throughout her essay, Jourmae uses the metaphor of friendship to explain her thoughts, and concludes that fake news can influence decision making due to lack of paying attention to details and not taking the time to carefully revaluate the situations.

Earlier this month, French for the Future announced the long-awaited results of it's 16th edition of the National Essay Contest. Jourmae won a $3000 scholarship to the Université de St. Boniface for her essay, "Mes anciennes amies, les fausses nouvelles?".
