Right to Play – NISS

by Perdita Felicien

I’ve had a blast being part of Right to Play’s National Inspirational Speaker’s Series (NISS). This week I spoke to Oscar Peterson students in grades 3, 4,  5 about my sport story & recent visit to Benin & Liberia with Right to Play. I will be visiting other GTA schools  and  10 in Ottawa at the end of October.

NISS is  a 5 week long campaign, over 330 schools across Canada will be visited by athlete ambassadors. The funding of this massive and important endeavour is provided by  Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD). After my recent trip to West Africa I have seen how children develop essential life skill through sport and play.

I just love sharing my journey and speaking on my role with Right to Play, so bring on Ottawa!
