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.
