Lila Mansour: Cariboo--Prince George

Lila Mansour: Cariboo--Prince George

I am a second-year economics student at the University of Northern British Columbia, and I hope to pursue law afterwards. I have a personal interest in politics and international studies, and I hope to be a part of positive social change throughout my future career, whether at a local, provincial or national level. I have strong connections with my Prince George community, and I believe in the importance of helping others and taking initiatives to build a strong community. We truly rise when we lift others. I am an organizer for the Relay for Life youth activities, I teach at my local Sunday school and I am a volunteer at the Justice Education Society at the Prince George Court House. I try to be a part of awareness initiatives regarding my faith, and I have led Hijab for a Day at my university and helped at Open Mosque events in town. I also enjoy trying to be a part of national initiatives to widen my horizons and meet new people from across Canada. During the Canada 150 celebrations, I was chosen as one of 150 youth from across Canada to present issues that Canadians will face for the next 150 years. We also got to partake in Canada 150 celebrations and learn so much about our nation. I look forward to gaining new experiences, knowledge and connections during my time with Daughters of the Vote.
