Hi my name is Anika Garlick and I'm one of the VP Student Relations for this year's 5 Days for the Homeless campaign. I'm in my first year at the Alberta School of Business, majoring in Business Economics and Law.
Why I am doing this:
I’m so incredibly excited to be working alongside YESS in order to raise awareness for the very real issue of youth homelessness. The work they do is integral within Edmonton, providing youth at risk a place to turn to where they can seek help and feel safe, even if just for a day. I truly believe that it is only by helping fellow youth less fortunate than ourselves that we might assure a better future for our entire community
