Canada World Youth
Canada World Youth/Jeunesse Canada Monde
After high school I worked and traveled with Canada World Youth/Jeunesse Canada Monde to Quebec and India for nine months in total. I was paired with a wonderful woman named Geeta Narayan during this time, a Karnatakan low caste woman from the Nilgiri hills region of southern India. She was very multilingual and put us Canadians to shame in our mere bilingual traditions. She taught me about internal strength in so many ways, about hardships and prejudices, and about finding your own path.
