Where are They Now?
Jessica Mullin, Law-Loi 2008
"Words cannot describe how amazing an experience Encounters with Canada is. Not only did I meet lifelong friends from across Canada and get to experience much of what makes Canada the wonderful place it is, but EWC has also changed the way I view the world, as well as my education. After having attended, I knew there was an entire world waiting for the youth of Canada and it was ours for the taking. Because of my positive experience there, I will be majoring in law at Carleton University in Ottawa in the fall. Believe me when I say, I've attended three youth programs in Ottawa since EWC and none of them compare; this is an experience not to be missed! I am hoping to one day return as a monitor and am so thankful for this amazing memory."
More than 800 groups formed - one for every theme week since 1982 - and thousands of photos uploaded - with many more to come! Yours to share as a member of the EWC Alumni Community.
