The Youth Committee asked Victoria Marcoux (last year’s winner of the Amcal Montreal-Lakeshore Rotary Club Leadership Award) to share with us some thoughts on her life this past year since winning the award.
“Since then I’ve graduated from high school, which was a very big step for me. Like many of the teams who go through Amcal, a lot of adults don’t know if we’re going to graduate because you’re in a place in your life that you don’t know where you’re going to go, where you’re going to end up in a month, let alone a year.”
“And now it has been a year, almost to the day, since I received the Leadership Award and I’m still so very grateful. When people hear that I received this award, they’re surprised because they didn’t necessarily expect it of me. I still work with the veterans. I’m still in Air Cadets. I still do a lot of work with teenagers and I still do volunteer work.”
