Ask anyone who has ever attended a WE Day event somewhere across Canada, and they will likely tell you it’s a full day of inspiration from start to finish.
I was lucky to be able to experience my very first WE Day event at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre.
I came home with an incredible list of inspirational quotes from WE Day.
“WE Day combines the energy of a live concert with the inspiration of incredible stories of leadership and change. This stadium-sized event—held in 14 cities in the US, Canada and the UK—brings together world-renowned speakers and performers with tens of thousands of youth to celebrate the power of service.”
To say I left there feeling inspired would be an understatement.
I’m still trying to process (in my own head) thoughts of all the incredible people I heard speak, the inspiring speeches they gave, and most importantly, the extraordinary group of over 16,000 kids who surrounded me yesterday, who were all wound up and excited by every word coming from the WE Day stage.
This WE Day event took place the morning after the bitter US election between Hilary Clinton and President-elect Donald Trump.
For the youth of Ottawa, this event couldn’t have happened at a better time.
In fact, that goes for me too!
We all needed the positivity and inspiration that WE Day brought to Ottawa!
Here, in no particular order, are just a few of the inspirational quotes from WE Day, that caught my attention. If I could have, I would have written them all down but, I couldn’t keep up with all the positivity that filled the stadium yesterday!
And that’s a good thing!
