I had neverbeen much of a political kind of person,but after attending the Democracy andYouth themed week a passion forpolitics has blossomed. It was very eyeopening to hear from Peter Schiefkeand be able to see a custom madeletter addressed to solely theparticipants of our week. We havegreatly enjoyed the companionship of101 participants ranging from everyterritory as well as every province andto this day, 58 days since my timethere, we still talk regularly. It is greatto have people to whom you can talkabout politics. When I left, I had aminimal amount of knowledge aboutpolitics and now my computer notifiesme about political updates. My timethere was truly life changing and Iwould highly suggest to anyone whohas the opportunity:Do not hesitate!Devin O’Rourke/BSS Student
