Maegan, 14, Greenbank Middle School, Ottawa

Great! Your presentation seemed to open quite a few eyes at our school but I think it would be good to follow up on it, so the whole idea stays in our school. Kind of liking changing the culture, that’s how my teacher put it. Because we can educate everyone but how do you change the culture so it’s not cool to use phrases like “that’s so gay” and so on. We have a lot of intolerance at my school and really makes an impact, definitely not in a good way. So my teacher, a friend and I are starting a group to help improve this problem in our school.
