Challenging oneself to make a difference

Miraf is a curious and passionate young woman. As a teenager, she participated in the C-Vert Environmental Engagement Program to learn more about the most pressing issue of her generation: climate change.

Guided by the program’s leaders, Miraf not only developed her project management and advocacy skills, but also learned to get out of her comfort zone, to challenge herself, question preconceived ideas, and fine-tune her critical thinking abilities.

Through the projects, her interest quickly turned into a passion, and her passion into a plan for the future. Today, Miraf is a CEGEP student and hopes to pursue her passion for environmental protection further by studying politics and environmental science. She encourages a new cohort of young participants to explore their interests and use their talents to make a difference in their community.
