Hello! My name is Ishita Mann and I am a youth ambassador representing NBCHS for this year’s Experiences Canada exchange program. As a student, I am currently working towards attaining the prestigious IB diploma. In my spare time, I enjoy participating in sports such as swimming, boxing, running, and dancing. Besides sports, I enjoy volunteering and consequently, I volunteer at my local hospital, youth center, and homeless shelter. In terms of my school community, I am a member of student leadership clubs such as debate, mock trial, robotics, cake decorating, and bullet journaling. In fact, last year, I earned the opportunity to attend the nationally recognized ‘SHAD’ program at York University! I also run a non-profit organization called ‘Saskatchewan Youth United’ which works to reduce social stigmatism regarding mental health and promoting S.T.E.M. opportunities in Saskatchewan. I am extremely humbled to have been given the opportunity to represent the Battlefords in this exchange program and I cannot wait to ‘experience Canada’!
