Toronto East Regional Fair
My Heritage Fair Project is on Hannah Taylor, a diverse child advocate who wanted to eliminate homelessness at the age of 5. She has taught people all around the world to never give up and follow their dreams. With Hannah’s efforts, she has made a big impact on the world today by proving that nothing is ever impossible!
What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?
The most interesting thing I learned about my topic is how much a single person can accomplish in such little time. As of Hannah, she did many things like raise over 2 million dollars or create over 50 shelters and much more all for the homeless. Though Hannah was only 5 when she wanted to help the homeless, she still made a difference and was a big influence to all children. This is what true courage and determination means!
What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?
The important lessons I have learned that I want to share with other Canadians is to never give up, never think on the negative side, and to always try to make a difference in their community. All of these actions, Hannah accomplished and that's what led her to successfully eliminate homelessness. As to all of us, we might not know it, but a single positive action can lead to a huge difference. That's how our world has people who care for their surroundings!
How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?
I would compare my life today to the lives of those studied in my project by the many positive changes that have occurred since. When Hannah was 5, there were millions of the homeless on the streets. Now, in my life, the homeless population has decreased. From a lot to so much little, that's what positive change can do!
