S3 E18 World Vision Youth Ambassador Mira Gillis, hosted by Aurora

By Rebecca Chambers

Rebecca Chambers is a social science teacher at John McCrae Secondary School in Ottawa, Ontario. In this podcast, students from her project-based learning classes talk about the work that they are doing throughout the year.

In this episode, Aurora makes her podcasting debut. Aurora is sad to know that children around the world do not have the same opportunities that she does and that many of them are forced into child labour. In this episode she interviews Mira Gillis who is an amazing young advocate for this issue. Mira is originally from Windsor, ON and is currently in her first year at Carleton University. Mira Gillis served as a national youth advocate for World Vision Canada, campaigning for the federal government to enact legislation which would force companies to disclose if children were exploited to make their products.
