What’s the best part of being a youth ambassador for ACT 4 Global Change?

Having a platform and a reason to finally give those presentations and do the workshops I kept telling myself I was going to do.

What is your favorite quote and why?

"A person's a person, no matter how small" -- Dr. Suess. As cliche as it may be, it really speaks towards how we should be viewing everyone... as human beings. No matter race, gender identity or even height, we are all humans living on this world together.

What inspires you to ACT for Global Change in your community?

Each day it seems as if there is another problem the world is facing. Having two younger brothers, I know that they will have to grow up in this world and I want them to have the best experience possible.

If you had a free day to spend any way you wanted to, what would you do?

Just take a mental health day for myself, do things that I know I'd enjoy. Anything that will get me away from the stress and responsibilities of every day life.

Which Sustainable Development Goal are you the most passionate about and why?

Definitely climate change, without a doubt. Over the summer I had the opportunity to go to the Arctic. That personal connection is something you cannot fake, and it's something that makes me even more passionate about protecting this earth.

 

 "The children really enjoyed having Noha visit the classroom and were very engaged in her presentation. She was very well-spoken, knowledgeable, and effective in her delivery of information. She offered the children many opportunities to share their knowledge and experiences related to the topic. She also had a questionnaire for the students to answer at the end and rewarded them for their participation with small prizes." - Regina Wicks, MacDonald Drive Elementary, NL
