Youth Speaker Talks To Teens At Boys & Girls Club

With the poverty, high teenage pregnancy rates and apparent lack of opportunities here in Saint John many of our young people may find it almost impossible to feel positive and empowered...but a Port City youth speaker wants that to change.

Nick Pereira tells CHSJ News part of changing your story comes down to loving yourself, saying we may be plagued by problems here in the city, but underneath those problems are a lack of vision and self-love. He says if all you see is poverty then all you know is poverty and the idea of becoming something bigger never enters your mind.

A speaking event called "Champion Your Story" at the Boys & Girls Club of Saint John marking the launch of the presentation Pereira will be doing all across the country. You can find more information by clicking here or here.
