Easter Seals PEI has selected Lucie Gallant as its Ambassador for its 2024 Campaign.

Lucie is ten years old and a grade five student at École-sur-Mer in Summerside, PEI. Outside of school, she enjoys basketball, sensory-friendly swimming, art, making videos and spending time with animals, particularly horses and cats. Lucie lives in Sherbrooke, PEI with her parents Melissa and Chris, and her younger brother Jackson. Diagnosed on the autism spectrum, Lucie has experienced social and cognitive challenges, and she is excited to help increase awareness about neurodiversity and the power of optimism with her motto: “With a positive mind you can do extraordinary things.”  

“We’re delighted to have Lucie joining us in this busy and important role as our next Ambassador,” explains Executive Director Kelly Mullaly. “We know she’s proud of her roots in the Francophone community and it will be wonderful for her to share her message in both French and English with the students we’ll be visiting across the Island during the 2024 School Tour.”

Easter Seals PEI is a major project of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown in partnership with the Rotary Club of Montague and Eastern PEI and the Rotary Club of Summerside. Its mission is to enhance the quality of life, self-esteem, and self-determination of Islanders with disabilities. Easter Seals celebrated 100 years of service in Canada in 2022. 

Lucie will officially start making public appearances as the 2024 Easter Seals PEI Ambassador in the new year.
