My name is Ganaaboute Gagne; I am the Student Trustee for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, the chair of Actua’s Youth Council, and a member of the Ottawa Youth Engagement Committee.
Over the past four years of high school, I’ve dedicated much of my life to trying to give others the same opportunities that I was given in life. Through volunteering, joining councils and committees, and planning events I have done my best to try to make life better for everyone, regardless of race, sexuality, gender, or anything else. Through these experiences, I have met incredible people, visited incredible places, and partaken in experiences I never thought I would.
And now, this journey has led to me MedLife. This spring break, I will hopefully be taking part in a trip to Lima, Peru in which myself and a team of other volunteers will be running mobile clinics WITH the people of the community to not only help them now, but to ensure sustainability.
As trips like this are not free, I am happy you have visited this page, and if I can say one last thing – every dollar helps!
Please reach out if you have any questions.
