At my first Athlete Leadership workshop, I discovered I had a voice and I wanted to speak up for those who are unable to. This program has given me the courage, confidence and skills to try new experiences, like presenting at a Family Health Forum in P.E.I., taking the Health Messenger course, creating and narrating a Zoom tutorial with Special Olympics North America, and delivering a speech to a Special Olympics Global panel. Being involved in this amazing program has helped me grow as a person, an athlete leader, and a citizen. It has changed the direction of my life!
