La femme qui m’inspire est ma mémère Rocque. Elle m’a toujours poussée et encouragée à être forte et ce, depuis que je suis toute jeune. Elle s’est toujours occupée des autres. Elle a toujours défendu ce qu’elle croyait et ceux qu’elle aime, donc elle m’encourage à faire de même. Louise Rocque est une mère, grand-mère, tante, arrière-grand-mère et amie extraordinaire.
Je l’aime beaucoup. XO

Je ne serai jamais assez reconnaissante envers cette femme, qui continue d’aider les personnes sur son chemin qui en ont de besoin. C’est une femme persévérante, courageuse et fière des gestes qu’elle pose autour d’elle. Maman, je t’aime et je te remercie d’avoir contribué à la femme que je suis aujourd’hui.

Yoanna, je suis bien contente de t’avoir croisée sur ma route. Tu es une femme inspirante! Merci de ta générosité d’âme!
