Isha Masood, grade 10 student from Mississauga Secondary School is one of 30 youths from across Canada selected to represent French for the Future as their National Ambassador for the French language.
As a National Ambassador for the organization, Masood will participate in a five-day training program at McGill University from August 9 to 14. At the training, students will participate in a variety of interactive workshops and activities centered on the significance of bilingualism.
Following her training, Masood will return to school in the 2018-19 school year and work with her French teacher, Ms. Gillan, to promote the French language and bilingualism by organizing various activities and events related to French.
French for the Future is a not-for-profit organization that supports and motivates high school students on their path towards bilingualism. It works to promote Canada's official bilingualism and the "immediate and lifelong benefits of learning and communicating in French to students from grades 7 to 12 across Canada."
