It’s very seldom that my perspective has shifted as much as this past week. This Globe and Mail article, A police drama with a happy ending, had a lot to do with it. For the last 9 years I have focused extensively on how post-secondary students and young professionals engage in their careers in their 20’s. I was passionate about it because I understand this group and that’s when things clicked for me. This article was a wake up call for me, that there is a significant population around me that don’t join the ranks of “students” or “young professionals”. They don’t have the lens that my parents and mentors gave me to see the full extent of the opportunities that are available through education. I don’t expect to become an expert on what it’s like to face some of the challenges that new Canadians and “at risk” youth face—but reading this article reminded me that I care deeply and that I want to broaden my horizons.
