Eve has decades of experience in the world of international cooperation and solidarity, as a coordinator of international internship programs, international relations with the African Committees of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as with an NGO based in Rio de Janeiro working with children and young people from marginalized neighborhoods. She has also been the director of a school in Brazil.

She has worked and carried out missions in sub-Saharan Africa, the Maghreb, Latin America, and Asia. She obtained a degree in Comparative Literature, Modern Languages, and Public Relations, and completed graduate studies in African History and Afro-Brazilian Culture. Her first experience in international community work was with a street children project in Guatemala. Since then, she has accumulated experiences with this audience both nationally and internationally.

She is involved in participatory school organizations. She is on the board of a foundation for a school specializing in significant learning challenges (DYS disorders), as well as an administrator in a local youth cooperative and with children with disabilities. She feels a duty to contribute to society and leverage her expertise in multiculturalism, diverse work environments, and her linguistic skills by volunteering her translation services to refugees and new immigrants. She speaks English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and has a good basic knowledge of Arabic, German, and Italian.

Her professional knowledge of major donors, the network of international cooperation organizations in Quebec and Canada, her sensitivity to human relations and rights, and her experience in managing international internship and volunteer programs make her an excellent asset to the IBCR team.
