Thank you to my team, thank you to my family, thank you to my lover, thank you to my friends, thank you to my wonderful children”, said in French, then in English, the winner while her son Yohan, one of her two adopted children with trisomy-21, jumped into his arms.

Grateful

In an interview given before his last performance on the program broadcast by City-TV, Jeanick Fournier told the Journal that, win or lose, she will never forget the support shown to her by Quebecers during her adventure.

“I have nothing but gratitude and I want to say a huge thank you to the Quebec public. It created an extraordinary bond with people. What touches me a lot and feeds me is not knowing the number of views of my videos, it’s when Mme Thérèse comes to see me and says to me: you have given me chills, happiness and emotions that do me good. I think people recognize themselves in me. »
