NYAP a great experience
I was chosen for the Nunavut Youth Abroad Program last year, 2001 to 2002.
When I went to this NYAP program, I went to Newfoundland with Charlotte, who also went to NYAP. She was my buddy.
What we did was, we participated in learning how to give a tour and help out with cleaning up. We had a great experience making new friends and went to new places where we have never been to. Everything was new to me.
For the first time, I was away from my community for six weeks. I have learned to be away from my family too. Now I am away from them. I’m living in Ottawa now.
I want to thank the Nunavut Youth Abroad program for accepting me into this great experience. I would like to also encourage the youth in Nunavut to apply to get into this program. It’s a great experience. Have fun while you are in it.
