Why did you join the MYC?

I joined because I really want to make change to the issues I felt passion about. I saw other youth commissioner in action and I thought I could be one of them. I never thought MYC would grow on me so much. It helped me develop my leadership skills in varies ways. Not only that, it helped me grow as a person from all the different perspectives and different walks of life

What is one goal you have for the next year on the MYC?

One goal doesn’t determine how much I want to do for next year. I strive to continue to grow as a MYC’er and help the new MYC’er grow in their own way. I also want to continue Education/Youthvoice committee’s work, and create an elected liaison.
