Dear fellow members of ward 17
Thank you so much for taking an interest in some possible youth candidates. My name is Femi Abiola and I am a grade 10 student at Havergal College running to be your youth councillor for Don Valley North. I would love the opportunity to become a youth councillor for Don Valley North as it gives me an opportunity to give back to my community and with the resources provided, fix issues that our community might be dealing with. I will choose to actively make a change. By listening to the view’s and opinion of those I represent, I will put into action plans and ideas held. During my time as a youth council member, I hope to continue discussions on the TTC expansion & reliability, youth in homeless shelters and more community programs for all ages. I promise to accomplish this by being open-minded to new proposals and suggestions. This platform will be used to not just amplify youth voices but to help them be taken more seriously. The youth are the future, so we should have a stake in how it is built. Using your visions and a voice we can build a better tomorrow.
I have previous experience within school councils and have the Toronto Youth Council.
Approachability is an important aspect of a representative so you can contact me on Instagram @femiabiola400 or email me at email@example.com.
Thank you. Sincerely,
