Born in Chicoutimi, Myriam grew up in Montreal. She holds a Bachelor of Law from the University of Montreal and a Master's degree in International Law. She is particularly interested in human rights issues. Her commitment to the fight against leukemia stems, among other things, from this interest and the fact that she has lost relatives affected by this disease, including her grandmother. She wishes to be involved in promoting the cause in order to participate in the funding of research and the development of real and concrete solutions for those affected.
