Episode #107: Empowered To Use My Voice w/ Lindsey Alcy

Lindsey Alcy is a 21-year-old, Canadian-born Haitian and a 3rd year Global and International Studies student at Carleton University. Passionate about humanitarianism and social justice, she is currently doing her specialization in global law and social justice, with an added minor in sociology. For Lindsey, her leadership began in high school at the young age of 14 years old through her involvement with her student council. Further, in 2017, she was the student trustee elect of the french catholique school board, le Conseil des Écoles Catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE). She ran student-led initiatives with her peers, such as Relay for Life for the Canadian Cancer Society and advocated for Black Indigenous People of Colour (BIPOC) through her past commitment to the Afro-Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP). As a result, Lindsey is well versed in anti-black racism and Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (EDI) research. She was recently awarded a prestigious grant to further express her passion for black advocacy, especially in food sovereignty for the Haitian diaspora in Canada. Empowered to use her voice since a young age, Lindsey now aspires to become a diplomat in hopes to become the change she seeks in the world and ultimately share her knowledge.
