As we are nearing the Global Youth Leaders Tour, we are getting to know the youth a little bit better.
Today we are hearing from Caroline Nochasak, from Nain, Labrador. Travelling to Honduras with ACIC and the Falls Brook Centre, the 17 year old tells us a little bit about herself and her thoughts prior to departure.
ACIC: Why do you want to do the Global Youth Leaders Tour in Honduras?
Caroline: I want to do the Global Youth Leaders Tour because I am passionate about the topics and dialogue it will provide. I also would love to get to know a different culture and see the universal connections between people.
ACIC: What are you most excited about for this tour?
Caroline: I'm excited the most for meeting people who will collectively and individually teach me about international development and appropriate interactions between peoples.
ACIC: What do you hope to accomplish during your time in Honduras and afterwards in your community?
Caroline: What I hope to accomplish during the tour is to have a greater understanding of how certain systems work and how to improve relations with each other as human beings. I hope to bring the newfound knowledge back to my community and share it thoroughly.
ACIC: What do you do in your spare time?
Caroline: In my spare time I like to sketch portraits. People's unique faces fascinate me, and I like to attempt to capture it. I also love post rock and classical music! I listen to it any chance I get. And to play it on my violin. I read a lot. The current book I'm reading is "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck.
ACIC: What is your favorite quote?
Caroline: My favourite quote is a cliché quote: "Be the change you wish to see in the world"-Gandhi
You're a piece of this world, and you can easily be that piece of the world that is being changed. And hope people see.
The tour kicks off July 7-17, 2015!
