The Bell Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated strong academic ability, leadership potential, volunteer work, extracurricular activities, work experience, and good citizenship.
Valliere is enrolled in the arts program, and plans to become a child psychologist.
“I want to work to help children and women who have been abused,” she says. “This is an area I’ve always had an interest in through both my academics and volunteer activities.”
Valliere is involved in many groups and organizations including LINKS, which sees Mount Allison students serving as mentors in the local elementary school, Youth Mentorship Program, Because I am A Girl, the Argosy, the University’s Intervarsity Christian Fellowship group, and Free the Children, where she has been volunteering since age 10.
With plans to minor in drama, she is also set to take the stage during two Windsor Theatre productions at Mount Allison in 2014, Head À Téte, a bilingual play for children, and Noises Off, an upcoming play in Windsor Theatre. Valliere is also part of Tintamarre, Mount Allison’s bilingual theatre troupe.
