I excited to be a SSGM so I can use my voice in a meaningful way and showcase that no matter what our abilities are, we can all make a difference in the community. I want to bring awareness and change the narrative of how society perceives people with intellectual disabilities and advocate for a better change.

“I would like to be a SSGM so I can represent Canada in a meaningful way and give my diverse perspective on different topics while meeting different people from around the world. As a SSGM I hope to educate, inspire, and move people in different ways.”
