Around the World and Back to Share Her Story

Limarzi refers to one of her favourite quotes that inspires her to change the world. It's from American poet David Thoreau.

April 30, 2013 - An eighteen year-old student, world traveler and ambassador visited St. Charles College this week to share stories about her work and travels in Africa.
  
Laura Limarzi is a graduate of Assumption High School in Windsor, Ontario.  During her years there, she was the student council president and got involved with many social justice issues and initiatives including HOBEY International and Craig Kielberger's Me to We program.  During her last year in high school she got the chance to travel to Africa with Me to We to learn about life in Kenya, and helped with the foundations projects, focusing on clean water and education. 
 
Upon graduation, Limarzi was awarded the Morehead-Cain Scholarship, which is a full scholarship to attend University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.  Currently she is taking a 'gap' year, which has led her to work with the oraganization Determined to Develop.  Through this organization, she travelled to Malawi where she lived for four months working with children.  Upon her return, she was invited to Mozambique to work with The United States Military AIDS Research Program.
  
Limarzi was in town to visit family, and was invited by her aunt, a teacher, to SCC to share her experiences with our students.  The goal of Limarzi's visit was to inspire others to get involved in their school, their country and the world in which they live, always remembering that no matter where we live, our daily struggles are similar.  We are united through the human experience. 
 
Throughout the day spent at SCC, Limarzi made two presentations.  One to Leadership students and the students who had just returned from Guatemala, and one to the Life Skills students.  Her message in each presentation was simple. Get involved!  Together we can make this world a better place, whether through local or global causes.  Laura also visited Holy Cross Elementary School, and The Soup Kitchen while in Sudbury.
