Éloïse Dalpé
Writer

I am French Canadian and am much less poetic when I write in English. But I often like to think that if I was born in Cornwall, I would have married a nice British man, would have adopted two little Corgis named Winston and Winnie, and my best friend would have surely been Lena Dunham.

Éloïse has a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and is currently a social work student. She is fascinated by human beings and life’s big questions, and you’ll find passion and fun in all of her writings.

Jade Milette
Writer

From physical therapist to flight attendant, Jade has always been guided by her heart and in touch with her emotions. Always up for a new adventure and willing to explore a new place, she knows that the best things happen outside of her comfort zone. Her main travel motivations: food, surfing, and meeting new people. She loves to share her highs and lows, her must-dos and must not dos, and stories including cute boys thrown in there too. Through her writings, you’ll also get an exclusive glimpse at some of Marina (Nana) and Jade’s (Pauline) adventures around the world. #NanaandPauline

For me, holding a mic or pencil is basically the same thing.
Yes, I was on Star Académie (F.V. American Idol).
No, I didn’t release an album afterwards.
No, you haven’t seen me on Occupation Double (comparable to Big Brother).
However, I’m still single!
