I’m back! With Advanced Placement exams, Prom, Gradutation, everything else MTC related, and the blog network being down, the last two months have been very eventful!
Without further ado, in honour of Throwback Thursday, I’ve decided to write about my experience at the International Children and Youth Day festivities held at Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday, April 18th. The Turkish Society of Canada organized a fantastic event in celebration of this special day, where I had the privilege of appearing to commemorate this exciting occasion.
Each year, The Turkish Society of Canada hosts International Children and Youth Day, which is marked April 23rd, to celebrate all youth from diverse backgrounds. I had the privilege of attending this festival where I had the opportunity to meet people who were promoting their culture. In other words, the square was filled with several different stations where representatives from various countries would share part of their heritage. For instance, jewellery beading and traditional arts and crafts were popular activities that I enjoyed participating in with the children.
The highlight of my day was definitely meeting the various members of the Turkish Society of Canada and speaking to them about the importance of celebrating our diverse backgrounds as Canadians. Being interviewed by media was fun too!
Thank you again to the Turkish Society of Canada for having me! To learn more about the Turkish Society or to see photos from the day, check out their website!
Until next time,
