Neil Young

My project talks about Neil Young's history, including him being an environmental and political activist outside of music, as well as his impact on Canadian youth such as myself. Overall Neil Young has been a great Canadian ambassador over the course of his career.



What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned many interesting things while researching Neil Young. Some of the most interesting things that I learned however include, how early in Neil Young's life he became interested in music, and also how many albums he has released over the course of his musical career.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Over the course of my research, I have discovered that Neil Young was not only a talented musician but also an activist who stood up for the rights of others.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Like Neil Young I became interested in music also at a young age. Like Neil Young I too play the guitar and also am interested in making our world a better place. I think music is a great way of spreading a message.
