VANITY Blog is currently looking for passionate youths to be a part of our blog page's Editorial Board!
We use the stories and experiences of immigrant and refugee youths in Vancouver to inspire other young people who just newly arrived in Canada. Through blogging, not only do we hope to help other high school students to adjust to their new Canadian life, we also wish to have a stronger network and tight-knit community of young immigrants in Vancouver.
We are living in the world where people from completely opposite sides of the world are able to speak in real time. Through the power of internet, it is so much easier to exchange ideas no matter where we are in the world! Our plan is to build a website where immigrant youths in Vancouver could share their migration experience and their feelings as they live their everyday lives here in Canada. Through their blog posts, we hope to give newcomer youths a picture of what student life in this country looks like. We hope to give them tips, advices, and words of encouragement as they gradually cope with the changes that they encounter in this new country.
Because Vancouver Immigrant Youth Blog hopes to be a collective voice of the youth of today, we would love to have our group be driven by young minds!
As an editorial board member of our blog, you will be of a part of a group who will be chiefly responsible in developing, managing, and improving our blog website. You will be constantly working with other 5-7 students to guarantee that our blog site remains appealing to young audiences, make sure that each blog post published is exciting to read, and see to it that our site becomes known by numerous students who are just starting to settle in their new lives here in Canada. This could involve having a group meeting once a month, holding weekly Skype and Facebook conversations to update each other, and having an exclusive access to our blog account.
In shorter terms, this position would allow you to become a member of our blog’s main team who will primarily be responsible in running our blog page!
