Being a member of Youth Team Canada:

Being a member of the team has given me the opportunity to open my eyes to how big this career path can be, as well as to learn new skills and hone old ones. It’s a place to forge new friendships and learn skills from a different point of view. It’s also a great opportunity to travel to places I never thought I’d be able to visit.
