My defining moment was when I was in grade 8, and I was one of the few lucky students chosen to attend We Day. As a kid, and still to this day, I have always wanted to make a difference in the world we live in, whether that be volunteering at a food bank, running kid's programs, or cutting my hair for cancer. I remember thinking of what We Day would be like, and wondering if the experience would have any affect on who I am as a person. The day finally came, and I was extremely excited. I had our school We Day t-shirt on, and I was ready to go. We arrived, got to our seats, and I remember Mark and Craig Kielburger coming out on stage, and sharing their own childhood story of how they began to change the world. I remember thinking to myself, yup, that's exactly what I want to do. I thought, even if the gestures are small, I can make a difference. Since that day, I have tried my best to keep an open mind, participate in community events, and volunteer inside our community as much as I can. I might not become famous for what I do to help people, but nothing beats the pride, and gratification that I am rewarded with when I help make a difference in the lives of others.
