John-Nathan grew up with soccer, his first passion. He has been part of several Sport-Études programs, including the National Center of High Performance. This led him to the Quebec Team, several Canadian Championships and even being invited to the National team camp. All the while combining the academic component, he has been the recipient of numerous scholarships and bursaries.
Before starting his studies at HEC Montreal in the bilingual B.B.A Bachelor of Business and Administration program, with a specialization in finance, John-Nathan graduated from Champlain College Cegep in Pure and Applied Sciences. Then, he studied a year and a half in Mechanical Engineering at the Polytechnique Montreal, while also being a member of the Carabins University soccer team.
Following his first semester at HEC, where John-Nathan stood out on the academic level while combining two jobs, including Customer Representative at Scotiabank, and with a keen interest in finance, he tested his chance and joined the HEC Montreal Student Investment Fund (FPHEC) in the winter of 2018 as an Analyst in the Industrial sector.
