Why you should work for a charity at least once in your life

I used to always think, "I already know what I'm gonna learn if I work for a shelter or charity: be thankful for what you have, other people have it worse than you, etc..." But, I learned way more than just that when I spent 3 weeks working in Winnipeg this summer. I worked for Centre Flavie-Laurent - a…

Doing life afraid – In honour of #BellLetsTalk

I really wanted to join in the talk about mental health this week with my fellow eAmbassadors to stress the importance of realizing and taking care of the state of your mind.
