After the experience of being one of Folklorama’s Ambassadors’ General, I again witnessed that profound and overwhelming feeling of joy to have met so many individuals from different backgrounds. I am amazed how our cultures have brought us in one place together, celebrating our diversity and appreciating what makes each of us unique.

Ambassadors General

Being an Ambassador General over the last 2 years has been a highlight of my experience in Winnipeg. As I prepare for school in a new city now, I’m grateful to this role for what it’s taught me.

My position in the festival let me get used to taking the first step in making those around me feel welcome and invited in whatever I was doing. Through Folklorama, I was able to see what a difference a dedicated team of volunteers can make—and now that I have this experience, I’m excited to see where my volunteering takes me next. Whether it’s in my classes, at a club, or through my future career, I know there will always be a place where I can apply the skills I’ve learned from Folklorama.
