A high school student may look for a career in the political world after being chosen to represent Canada in Japan.
Harriet Crossfield, a high school student who just came back from the Youth G7 in Japan, was one of the two Canadian youths representing the country.
“You won’t regret it. Even if it seems daunting it will be worth it. It will help you make new friends and get a new perspective”
Crossfield was one of 24 students chosen to go to Hiroshima to learn more about the challenges the world is facing
“The theme of the conference was world peace, with a specific focus on nuclear weapons as Hiroshima was the site of the atomic bomb”
She says going there was not easy task, as students had three hours to make a declaration that focused on nuclear weapons and global challenges
Crossfield says being chosen to represent Canada may have helped her decide on her future
“I hadn’t really thought about it as like a career path beforehand, but something to do with diplomacy or government would definitely be something I would be interested in now after these experiences”
The declaration is being presented at a Foreign Ministers meeting in April.
