I was given the amazing opportunity to attend We Day in 2010 while I was Gr.6, but getting the opportunity to go again as a Gr.10 that was incredible!
I really got pumped up and inspired through this event. No shiz, but what I’m saying was that when Molly Burke shared her story of how she was a warrior and got past bullying, it really broke me inside. I was bullied too, and even though I was sitting in the back of the Rogers Arena, I could literally feel a force bringing us together and forming a connection. When the emotion rippled through her voice, I could barely keep myself together, and the tears from falling out. When she ended her speech, I felt a resolution. I felt it was really time to move on, and even though being bullied the times still haunt me, I don’t let it affect how I treat my bullies or others who dislike me for my appearance. I’m a warrior too, Molly<3
And then there was Martin Luther King Jr. and I was like heck yeah! HIs speech was amazing, and it really picked me up. To take action right away, like don’t even wait. Do it now!
The atmosphere in the arena was like at it’s maximum. And I was so glad to be in a room with thousands of other youth and educators who cared just like I did. People who try to make an impact, and take what they have and try to give it to others.
If you ever do get the chance to go to We Day, it’s an experience you do not want to miss out on! Tickets run out fast, and for 2014, tickets for Vancouver and Toronto are long gone. But do try out other cities!
If you want to find out how I was invited as an Honored Guest for We Day Vancouver 2014 (this year,) then wait until Oct. 22 is over and there will be a page uploaded under my experiences! Or I might just post how I feel about being an Honored Guest! I’m extremely thrilled. I can’t believe it, this is like a VIP thing, and I legit feel like I’m on top of the world!!!!
