Encounters with Canada
Last March my school Virtual Learning Center was picked along with hundreds of other highschool's nation wide to send students for a week to Encounters with Canada, Canada's largest youth forum!
Youth are given the opportunity to "discover their country through each other, learn about Canadian institutions, meet famous and accomplished Canadians, explore exciting career options, develop their civic leadership skills and live an extraordinary bilingual experience. Over 87,000 youth have lived the EWC experience, so far!"
I was chosen to represent both ONLINE SCHOOLS (YAH!) and my riding. Meeting 127 other teens from across Canada (ages 14-17) in Ottawa was an amazing experience, and I have been encouraged to blog about it! Stay Tuned!
