I started attending Buckmaster Circle Community Centre programs back in 1995 when I was just seven years old. One of my fondest memories is of the breakfast program; I came for the orange juice! And when I wasn’t able to attend the ladies who served at the breakfast program would send an orange juice to me through my brother. I was spoiled!
Over the years I was involved in many of the centre’s programs as a participant and when I was old enough, as a volunteer. I worked hard in school to achieve a high school diploma with honors and went on to post secondary and finished a Criminology Program with an 82 average. Once again I went back to the Communtiy Centre to do my work term. It was the best phone call I ever made. I feel that I learned my strong sense of community through my connection with Buckmaster Circle Community Centre.
I am now the Program Director at Buckmaster Circle Community Centre and I am enjoying it very much. I love the fact that I am giving back to the community.
