Through the presentation of his personal journey, the specialist in long discounts Pierre-Luc Caron explained to young people that it is normal to be undecided about his future, especially at high school age.

You will experience several trials that will guide you where you want to go. Personally, I find myself here at 29 and I myself don’t know what I want to do in life after football. But what I want you to understand is not to put stress on your shoulders. There is no need to stress about his future.

Health, not just a physical issue

Pierre-Luc Caron went on to talk about the importance of physical and mental health in achieving your goals, explaining the interdependence of these facets for a person’s balance.

“What I want you to understand is that the two are connected. If the mental health is not going well, it will be difficult for the physical health to follow and vice versa.

At the end of the presentation, Dépotium, in partnership with the Montreal Alouettes, donated $1,500 to the school to develop its athletic program and football team.
