Amélia earned her bachelor’s degree in civil law and her Juris Doctor with a minor in sociology from the McGill Faculty of Law in 2023. She also completed a semester at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Before entering law school, she earned a college diploma in science, literature and arts at Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne in 2019.
Amélia’s passion for social engagement led to a high level of involvement in her community during her time in school. For example, she served as co-president of the Black Law Students' Association of McGill and as a volunteer member of the racial profiling committee of the Clinique juridique de Saint-Michel. At the same time, Amélia was a research assistant for Dean Robert Leckey and for the youth access to justice hub of the Accès au Droit et à la Justice (ADAJ) project. She completed a student clerkship at the Court of Québec (Youth Division) with two justices and took part in the Julius Isaac Alexander moot court competition. She also worked as a student at the Cartels and Deceptive Marketing Practices Branch of the Competition Bureau of Canada.
Amélia was on the dean's honours list, and her academic excellence and civic engagement were recognized by more than ten awards and scholarships during her time in university. In 2024-2025, she will complete a clerkship at the Federal Court of Canada for Justice Nicholas McHaffie. In her spare time, Amélia enjoys expressing her creativity through visual art and literature.
