If you have been following the Champions blog for awhile, you will already know that I am passionate about bringing people together to learn from, with and about each other. In fact, I think this is a critical component of community building – hearing other perspectives can guide and challenge us to think of ways to move forward.
Ignite Abbotsford is one of the projects I am spearheading in my community to make this happen. I hosted the first Ignite in October 2016, and for 2017, I have been fortunate to bring TEDx speaker and educator, Sandy Balascak alongside as a co-organizer.
We have assembled an amazing list of speakers for our 2017 event, happening October 11 in Abbotsford. Keeping true to my vision that all voices matter, we have educators, parents, service providers and youth who will be sharing their stories and perspectives on our stage. This event is open to anyone to attend, and I hope to see some of my Champions followers there!
