Loanah Jouvin wins the Délie ta langue! contest

March 13, 2024

For the 2nd consecutive year, it was a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) student at HEC Montréal, Loanah Jouvin, who won the Grand prix Antidote de l’éloquence on March 11, during the finale of the Délie ta langue! (Loosen your tongue) contest.

She won kudos for her presentation of the expression “To earn a living”, as it demonstrated “the originality of her interpretation, the power of her language, the relevance of her references, the richness of her text that was embodied so well, and the emotions she brought forth in us”, according to Monique Giroux, president of the jury, author, producer, and Quebec radio host.

Like Flavie Joane Nikébié, winner of the 2023 edition, Loanah Jouvin was able to benefit from the support of Carolane Doyon, a lecturer at HEC Montréal’s Business language training centre (CFLA).
