On Saturday, it was wonderful to attend the Network for the Empowerment of Women event hosted by the founder of Matella Event Concepts, Ifeoma Esonwune. This initiative is not only timely, but necessary to help empower young girls.

Every year, this event is in honour of #InternationalDayOfTheGirl.

I was delighted to say a few words to educate the young women on both the basics of politics and current issues.

It is important to open the conversation with young women to assure them that they have the opportunity to become a political leader, as it is necessary to make sure women’s issues and voices are equally heard.

Selam Abdella was one of the guest speakers and spoke about her experience of coming to Canada as an international student. She spoke about being afforded many opportunities because of this great country. She now works as part of the Dalhousie Student Union and hopes to inspire many young girls. Selam also wanted to stress the notion that they can be anything they want to be when they grow up.

Also, a big thank you to Emme Morin, Mercy Olugu and Fatima Alzaabi of the #GInspire360.

I hope that many of my young constituents will keep an eye out for this event for next year. It is extremely informative and truly does empower the young minds of tomorrow!

Today, in honour of #InternationalDayOfTheGirl, I recognized Riley Cogswell.

Riley is a wonderful Grade Six student at #ParkWestSchool.

I first had the pleasure of meeting Riley at a school litter clean-up
last Spring, where she and her friends demonstrated their passion
for the environment.

Riley is a member of the Green Team at her school, where she and her fellow peers clean garbage on the school grounds every day and meet once a week to discuss their progress and vote on a volunteer of the week.

Riley also volunteered as our Litter Patrol at our annual community
BBQ this past July, where she encouraged people to sort their
garbage, and gave a short speech on how everyone can help make an
impact towards this great cause in our community.

At the end of the BBQ, there was no garbage left thanks to Riley!
