Dominique, who describes herself as sociable, imaginative and persevering, has always had a talent for artistic creation. For over 10 years, she has been practising dance and for the last three years, she has been a coach and choreographer for a dance troupe. However her true passion is hairdressing. She works as a hairdresser for BLU coiffure & esthétique in Quebec City. She is also studying at the Centre de Formation Professionnelle de Limoilou. During her first hairdressing session, she attended a presentation by a former competitor who inspired her to become involved in the competitions. She considers her participation in WorldSkills Leipzig 2013 an honour and an opportunity to see what her trade is like in other countries. She considers her perseverance her best asset for the Competition. Dominique thanks her family, friends, teachers and management of the Centre de Formation Professionnelle for all of their encouragement and support for this adventure.
