One of the quotes he mentioned at this year's We Day is ''technology has the way to change the world.'' That is a true statement because technology did improve and evolved over time and it did change the world and how we live and more.
Sydney is a speaker for WE Day. She wants us to change the world no matter what age, race , or skin colour we are. One of her quote say "It doesn't matter what race, age, or skin colour you are. You can change the world!" Its true because you don't need to be some well known delegate for the U.N. You can just be a normal teenager wanting to change the world.
Travis was a target of bulling for the clothes he wore and his actions. To make him self feel better, Travis played video games, sports and listened to music. Travis helped a younger student That had suffered from bulling. Because of this Travis and David Shepherd created Pink Day.
This is Spencer West he is a man with no legs he was born with a disease so they had to cut his legs off they weren't really legs though, when he is telling his story he says "I was swimming in the ocean and a shark bit them off" but it wasn't true.
He was a cheerleader he was good at doing cartwheels, he has climbed a mountain but he needed some help though a quote he has said is "One cartwheel at a time" and my favorite quote "There is no cant's no wont's only hows!"
The speaker i chose from the We Day is Sydney Brouillard-Coyle. Her speech in We Day was stunning, on her speech she said "Children are the Future and Present". That's the quote i chose because it is a quote that really speak to me. Sydney is a 13 years-old girl who presented on We Day at October at Manitoba that was held in MTS Center.
"Even if you are different, you can always be a difference maker."
Spencer West is one of the speakers in We Day. He is one extraordinary person. When Spencer West said, "Even if you are different, you can always be a difference maker," I felt "Wow-ed." To me, this quote means that whether you have a disability, or you're in a bad condition, no matter what, you can still be a difference maker.Whether it may be being blind, not able to move or anything, you can still have that one goal of being an awesome difference maker. Even if you do something small that makes a positive impact in the world, you're already a difference maker.
"Never too young to make a change in the world."
14 year old girl, Sydney Brouillard - Coyle is one of the speakers for We Day. Sydney dreams of being elected to be the Prime Minister of Canada. When she was 9, she went to local clothing cupboard to volunteer in the morning, and she saw countless people without any proper clothing for winter. She met a guy named "Richard" and followed him to the basement where the clothes were kept. After when she saw Richard, she wanted to do something. So she started the "Garden of Love". At the age of 12, Sydney was invited to speak at We Days across Canada.
The quote that I chose from Sydney was "It doesn't matter what your race, age, or skin colour you are, you are made to change the world". I chose this quote because it doesn't matter at all if your skin colour is white or black, or if your a 9 years old, you can change the world. Anyone can change the world by taking small steps.
The speaker I choose was Spencer West. Spencer West was a guy whose legs were amputated when he was five years old due to a genetic disorder. The doctor told his parents that Spencer might not live a normal life. He proved them wrong. Spencer climbed a mountain, and even went to Kenya. There is a very famous quote he always say, "Forget the cant's, forget the wont's, go for the hows.
Marc and Craig Kielburger are one of the many speakers in We Day. These two difference makers started changing the world when they were twelve years old. One of the things they mentioned were, "Turn your passion into actions." To me, that means that if you want to be a difference maker, and you're passionate about it, there is always a way to make that passion of yours work. That's exactly what they did. Another statement that stuck with me would be, "The power of teamwork can change the world", meaning if we all work together, we will be successful to making this world a better place.
Travis Price also spoke at We Day. He was the one who started the Pink Shirt Day. He first started it in Nova Scotia when someone was bullied in high school for wearing a pink shirt. One of the things he said was to not let someone interfere with something you can do.
Ashley Murphy is a speaker at We Day. At Vancouver she talked about how we can stop bullying. She was born with HIV. She believes that we can turn weaknesses to strengths. She also told us that you should "accept yourself". She told us that you can "rock your differences". She met up with 2 kids in Africa that were 10 and 15 years old that also had HIV but they were too busy having fun to think about it.
Spencer West is another speaker for We Day. When he was 5 years old, his legs were removed because of a genetic disease. He couldn't join a sports team in his school years but he didn't give up, he tried out for cheer leading. In We Day Spencer told us that there is no cant's, there is no wont's, only how's. He also said that we can show the importance by focusing on the how's. What he is trying to say is that we can do anything, just think how we can do it.
Craig and Marc Keilburger areInternational activists and co-founders of We Day. They spoken in WE Day in Winnipeg, Manitoba. One of the quotes that really speak to me is "WE BELIEVE IN CHANGES". Another quote they said was"The heart of empowerment is WE". It's really inspiring to listen to their speech. We believe that we can make a difference. They said we are so deeply believe in WE DAY that's why we need to move the world from me to we.
We need to believe to our own abilities that we can make the world to a better place. We are the generation that believe in the power of WE. We need to take step to be the change of the world. They encourage people to be the changer of our world. Their speech is so powerful and inspiring. They said every human in the world can make a difference. I am amaze to them that they can be a stronger or I would say hopeful people in the world. They said that really inspire me is TURN PASSION INTO ACTION.

Thinking that you can survive on your own. Maybe you need to change your perspective.How will you survive without any help from the other?.You can't do things if you are not encourage to do it for someone. For example your parents that work so hard just to feed you and supply all your need. Do you think they would work that hard if it's only for them?. No, they won't because they have someone that inspire them to work hard.
Spencer West had his legs removed due to a genetic disease. He decided to accept and overcome his disability even though people thought he would never live a normal, fulfilling life. Spencer proved them wrong by climbing a mountain, walking 187 kilometers between two cities, and even going on a trip to Kenya. He couldn't be athletic at school due to his leglessness, so he became a cheerleader even as 'the awkward kid.' Through all of his hardships he can say, "There is no can'ts, there is no won'ts, only hows."
