Forum Magic!Posted on May 24, 2016 | Written by Alexis
I didn’t really understand what Forum Magic is, nor did I have a clue that it would impact me the way it has.
Being able to see the inside of the Parliament Buildings allows you to find out what really goes on, and have an appreciation for our government. This trip allowed me to put the puzzle pieces together and learn how a country is run. Forum has opened my eyes about our government, and that politics is the career I want. Just being around people who are like minded sent chills down my spine. It was a great opportunity to learn from other people, especially because everyone came from different provinces and territories, which I found pretty cool.
The city of Ottawa itself is beautiful, but what was more beautiful were the people involved in Forum, like the logistics assistants and group leaders. These were people who we had just met for the first time, and listening to them speak and to the advice they had to share was very inspirational. Forum allowed me to gain knowledge, but it was also an experience I hold very close to my heart.
I would strongly recommend Forum for Young Canadians. It’s a life changing experience that you can’t pass up!
