-the joy of teaching and sharing knowledge
-the closeness of siblings

because of the all people I've met...without you, I would've never developed into who I am. Each person or animal we met or crossed paths with in life has some sort of impact on us. The list is neverending...
To me, there's not just one important person in my life who had a positive effect on who I have become. It was a confluence of people and animals that shaped and defined who I am. I am grateful for all of these experiences be they happy or sad experiences as they have shaped and moulded me into a stronger character.
There's no doubt I will continue to grow and develop as a person but for now, what I can do is thank some of those people who have helped me along the way via The Big Shout Out. Thank you for being you and for being a part of my life!
#TheBigShoutout is an initiative that acknowledges and celebrates mentors across Canada as a part of the 100th anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada. It is sometimes hard to tell your mentor straight up what you think but with this initiative, you can write your feelings in words and share them with the world.
