BLOG Youth Advocacy

As some of you know (and most of you do not), the last few years have been one of the longest struggles of my life between school, home and my personal relationships. Amidst all of this, I have had an amazing support system of trusted adults and close friends who have helped me keep my head up and stay focused on my future. 

Within the past few months and weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to explore not only my gifts and strengths, but also my ability to inspire others.

I’ve learned so much and I feel like the universe is shoving me in the direction of youth advocacy.

Right now I am participating as a peer mentor in multiple capacities between LOFT and the YMCA, including a large research project targeted at youth homelessness in Ontario.

If you know anyone who may benefit from mental health and housing support, shoot me a message!

Otherwise, I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone 🙂
