My name is Hannah and I am a high school student. I’m really excited to start avidly blogging and help redesign the Children’s Area at the Bytown Museum. I’m really interested in researching and discovering more about the history of early Canada and its many different kinds of inhabitants. I am eager to get my blog on and help others discover a passion in Ottawa and Canada’s history.
Hey, my name is John and I am in high school. I joined the Youth Council to learn more about Ottawa’s heritage and the history of Canada.
Aspiring Game designer that isn’t too good with words.
Hey! My name is Lila and I’m really excited to be a part of the Bytown Museum’s Youth Council. I am a very athletic and adventurous individual who loves to explore interesting things about the world. My interests include: volunteering, scrapbooking, travelling, blogging, and meeting new people. I speak five languages which include English, French, Russian, Arabic, and some sign language. I can’t wait for all the upcoming fun events!
Hey, I’m Josiane. I’m a nice person, my passion is sports. I play football. During my spare time I like to draw or play the flute. I presently go to high school and I’m really proud of being a YoCo member.
I’m a soon to be graduated history student at the University of Ottawa and will hopefully be a student at Algonquin College for Applied Museum Studies starting in September. Originally from Ajax, ON, I moved to Ottawa in 2010 and the city has really become my home. In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching television, finding out my family history on Ancestry, and watching hockey. I am part of a sports podcast called 3 on 1 Radio which is a lot of fun (find us on twitter @Radio3on1)! Five years from now I see myself in a beautiful Canadian city working at a big museum as a programmer or event planner. I am so thrilled to be on the Youth Council this year and can’t wait to show youth in Ottawa how awesome museums can be!
Hi, my name is Lily. I am currently attending high school. My hobbies include figure skating and piano.
Hi there, I’m Shehnila (pronounced shen-eee-la). I’m a native Torontonian currently in the nation’s capital as a second-year student at Carleton University, majoring in Communication Studies. I love meeting new people and learning new, interesting things about the world around me, which is what attracted me to the Bytown Museum Youth Council. In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, watching movies and TV, and discovering new places in Ottawa. I’m always open to reccommendations!
As a 20-something history student living in Ottawa for the past two years of my life, the historical and contemporary setting of our nation’s capital has been very beneficial to me. I was born in the Northwestern Ontario town of Thunder Bay and it was there I received both my high school Diploma and my Honors degree in History from Lakehead University. In my spare time I love to play sports, read, watch classic movies, play video games and am on the never-ending quest for knowledge of the world around me. In the future I hope to work in a national museum and travel to all the places I have read about but never have had the chance to see.
Evelyn Marshall – Youth Council Facilitator
Hey! My name is Evelyn and I am the Youth Programs Facilitator for the Youth Council. That means I help Youth Council members by getting them in touch with people, organizations, and resources they need to make their ideas come to fruition! I was born in Ottawa, and my love for this city only intensified as I began studying at Carleton University and frequented unique restaurants and shops, discovered venues to check out local talents, and learnt more about Ottawa’s great history. In my spare time, I play competitive water polo, and when I’m not at the pool I like to read or make delicious meals with friends. I’m a recent Political Science graduate, and I am so excited to now be working for the Bytown Museum with the task of jumpstarting the Youth Council.
