On May 29th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, we hosted our second United Speakers event: Inspire. After a long year since the beginning of the pandemic, we wanted to motivate youth and bring passion into their life. The event was a success, with over 40 attendees, and we are delighted to have heard about what motivates our students and to see how public speaking impacted their lives during the pandemic.
The Inspire Event succeeded the Impact Event back in March. We were so excited to have another amazing speaker, more activities such as Kahoots and discussion debates. Fun prizes were also handed out to participants!!

United Speakers Impact is USG’s first ever event. There were approximately 60 people who attended the event. This includes members from the Toronto, Markham, and Oakville branch, as well as members from others clubs in the GTA. We had an amazing speaker, Deborah Ojo come in to speak with all the attendees about social justice issues, highlighting micro aggressions.
