Dear friends in Willowdale,
My name is Emma Zhou and I am a grade 10 student at Branksome Hall.
I hope to be your youth counselor because I believe that our voices are incredibly important since we are all the leaders of tomorrow.
My past experiences have given me the essential stepping stones in helping our community become a better place. I participated in the Ontario Page Program in grade 7 where I served the MPP's at the Legislature for two weeks and learned about the basics of government. I was also a part of the Ontario Model Parliament program this year where I debated bills in a real-life simulation in the Chamber. Lastly, I have been on the Willowdale Youth Council for the past two years and volunteered for our MPP for community events.
These skills that I have developed as a National debater and public speaker along with the numerous times I have been involved in politics will aid me in becoming the youth voice of Willowdale.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach me at 647-675-6688, email me @email@example.com, or on Instagram @emmazhou__.
