Anne-Marie Paquette

Architecture, McGill University, 2011

Passionate about innovative design that can challenge the status quo, Anne-Marie comes to The Next 36 with a degree from McGill’s School of Architecture and a minor from the Desautels School of Management. Her personal vision is to successfully use the process of ideation, investigation, iteration and implementation in response to a problem or opportunity to benefit society today and in the future. In 2010, Anne-Marie spent four months in Burkina Faso as a Junior Fellow with EWB’s Rural Agricultural Entrepreneurship team working with a cooperative of women which allowed her to translate her vision into action. She is a hard-working, challenge-seeking opportunist with an intrinsic motivation to learn about new cultures, places and people in an effort to gain a greater perspective on how to have a positive impact in the world.
