Lucie Gallant, the 2024 Easter Seals PEI Ambassador will be making her way across the Island as the Ambassador’s School Tour starts its visits to schools beginning April 24. A 43-year Island tradition, the Tour visits every school in the province in just six days.

Lucie is ten years old, a Grade 5 student at École-sur-Mer in Summerside, and the first-ever bilingual ambassador. Diagnosed on the autism spectrum, she has experienced social and cognitive challenges but 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.” 

Lucie encourages all Islanders to consider making a donation to Easter Seals. Funds raised will be disbursed to various registered charities on PEI through the organization’s annual provincial grant program.
