Last week we released our first official committee video ‘Meet the Execs’. (Click here if you haven’t seen it yet! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjWjWvHL0i0) The storyboard writing, filming and editing was an extremely fun process and we thoroughly enjoyed incorporating 1930s film elements into our edits. Through the Charlie-Chaplin-Style comical skits, we introduced our wonderful 2015 committee. The interview questions below will help you get to know each member a little bit better.
Q1: Where is home for you?
Coline Fievet: My parents move around a lot, but I feel at home whenever I am with them and my siblings.
Q2: What is your favourite spot in montreal? (Restaurant, Parc, etc)
Kailee Miner: Parc Jean-Drapeau, because there are multiple amazing events (i.e. Osheaga, Piknic Electronik, Weekends-du-Monde) that take place throughout the year that enhance the cultural experiences Montreal has to offer.
Lily Dinoff: St. Laurent! I love all of the shops, street art, and nightlife. St. Laurent reflects the vibrancy of the city and is a great place to meet up with old friends or make new ones.
Q3: If you were to be a cartoon character, who would it be and why?
Mykolas Raizys: Jerry from Tom & Jerry. Because of its capabilities of overcoming obstacles and adapting to various scenarios to reach the goal – run away from Tom.
Claire Peng: Eugene from Hey Arnold. I injure myself frequently. I twist my ankles all the time just from walking straight. I also have the worst luck in the world — been pooped on by birds twice now!
Q4: In 10 years, I will be…
Ines Dumont: 30 years old. If everything goes according to plan, I’ll be settled by then. I’d be living somewhere in South East Asia, with a cute little family and a loving dog. I hope that my future job lets me travel around the world! – it’s what I enjoy the most.
Aly Gohar: Living back home in Egypt, and running my own business. I have a lot of restaurant and bar ideas that I would love to put into action when I get back home.
Q5: If you won a million dollars at the lottery, how would you spend it?
Evrard Muco: Start my own small social business incubator.
Aarushi Kumar: I would buy back my childhood home, let my parents comfortably retire, ensure stability for my descendants, and invest money in developing countries. And buy the New York Giants Football team if there’s anything left.
Q6: If you could invite anyone to MMICC, dead or alive, who would it be?
Victoire Monnier: Probably Coco Chanel. She is an inspiration as a strong business woman who revolutionized fashion.
Valerie Ha: Beyonce! Not only is she Queen Bey and incredibly talented, but she is also a marketing genius. She’s reinvented herself time and time again, and managed to create a cult following regardless of the image she presents. She could perform a killer set, then teach us a few things about branding.
Q7: What are you most excited about in MMICC 2015?
Sophia Ebelt : I am most excited about celebrating 15 years of MMICC, in recognizing everyone that has been part of MMICC and ultimately joining our past with our present.
Ceren Koca: We draw and welcome 12 countries from across the globe to MMICC. The blend of different cultures, backgrounds and personalities for one week of laughter, enjoyment and hard work is what I’m most excited to see.
