Christelle Tessono: Argenteuil-La Petite-Nation

Christelle Tessono is a third year Political Science student at McGill University. She currently works for the Office of the Dean of Students as a Pedagogy & Development Coordinator for Equity Programming in Residences. This position allows her to write workshops related to the topics of consent, sexual violence, Indigenous realities and histories, race, gender, and sexuality. Her workshops are delivered to 3,000 first year students by a team of 15 facilitators she vigorously trains for over 50 hours with her colleagues. Additionally, she is currently the President of the Black Students' Network of McGill, which allows her to both support and advocate for Black students on campus. In the past, she’s held the position of Director of Finance for the 2017 Harvard World Model United Nations Conference (WORLDMUN) at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, for which she welcomed with her team over 1,600 university students from all over the world for a week-long simulation of various UN bodies. When she’s not busy learning fun facts about Latin American political history, Christelle can be found having brunch with her friends or watching The Office (the American version; of course!).
