My We Day Experience

It all started on Tuesday morning, October 30th, 2012 when We Day had arrived and I wanted to start making a difference. In order to make this difference I had to arrive at school before 7:45 am to be able to walk to the bus stop and to be on time at the MTS Centre to watch the We Day live. Ever since that morning I was feeling super excited that I was going to be able to see all the speakers and even all the singers like Shawn Desman, Lights etc. But most importantly, I was going to be able to learn more about making a difference and trying to help and also learn about those people who may have disabilities but still did something to help make a change and for those who still want to help make a difference today.

Well the day had started and we got on the bus and went off to the MTS Centre. Right when I got to the MTS Centre, of coarse I was starting to get really excited again. Well we found our seats and got all of our things settled then went to check out some booths and take some pictures. I got a picture and autograph from Much Music, bought a We Day shirt, and got a lot of free things! Who doesn't like free things? Well anyways after checking out all the cool things, it was time to go back to our seats because the We Day was soon to start. This was the time that I had to start listening to what all the speakers had to say and start setting my mind on what I was going to do to help make a difference. After listening to the whole performance got me really motivated to make a difference. I was so shocked to hear all of what the speakers had to say and the stories that some speakers told. The one that got me the most imspired in was Molly Burke's speech. The way that she explained her life and what had happened to her when she turned 14 years old. No words can explain how emotional it was to hear her story about turning 14 years old. Everyone was in shock and no one could believe anything that she said. It was to unbelievable to even hear. After finishing her speech got me really thinking that I really need to make a difference because I wouldn't want what happened to her to happen to me or to anyone else but to make this a change, I would need to make a difference in this world so that everyone understands that bullying is wrong and if you don't want to get bullied, then you shouldn't bully anyone else because they are feeling the same way about it.

My overall impression of We Day is that I don't think I've ever seen something so motivating and something that amazing ever before. This changed my life a lot and is really wanting me to make a big difference in the world because of everything they did especially the speakers who had such emotional and fearing speeches that made me really think and start setting my mind on being the change and making a difference. From everything I learned and heard on this day made me want to set my mind and help and also make a change. I am willing to do anything because this impression has changed me so much. From this day forward, I am going to try to do anything I can and I mean anything to make a difference in any way that is possible. Once I set my mind to do something, I have to do it, it's just how these things are. You say your going to do it and it doesn't get out of your head until you actually do it. Well this so far has been the best experience for me and I wish I could go back again next year. It has tought me the biggest lesson ever and I will never forget anything that anyone of them said.

Well as I've told you before, there are really no words that can explain how great of a job all the speakers did. There was Craig and Marc Keilburger, Hannah Taylor, Mikhail Gorbachev, Spencer West, and Molly Burke. They all did a phenomenal job but I think the one that impacted me the most was Molly Burke. Well Molly was telling us her story and it basically started when she turned 14 years old. Molly said that she had hurt her ankle so she needed to be using crutches. Well Molly also said that she wasn't a very popular girl and she didn't really have any friends. She got bullied all the time. Well one day the "popular girls" also known as the "bullies" asked Molly if she would like to hang out with them. Molly was so desperate and she really wanted to have some friends so she took the offer and agreed to hang out with them knowing that they were the bullies. While walking around with them, Molly realized that there was trees above her head and next thing she knows, she was in a forest. Well she sat down and took a break and approached to a loud noise up against the tree with her crutches. Even before she turned around to see what had happened, she already knew that her crutches were broken. Then next thing she knew it, she was all alone in a forest with no crutches so she tried to get up but it didn't work, she just fell right back down. Molly didn't know what to do at this point so her emotions came out and she started to cry. So after telling us that part, Molly told us to be quiet for the next seven seconds. Everything was dark and it was all silent, she began by saying "this is how I see my world" but everyone was kind've confused on what she mean't about that. Then she said you may have not noticed but "I am blind". I was in shock for at least five seconds but it was not only me, it was everyone. No one could believe it, no one. She told us that she turned blind at the age of 14. This changed her life a lot but she has been working through it and hasn't given up. After her story, got me really inspired because I would never ever want something like that to ever happen to me. I don't think that I would be as confident as she was and have such a strong voice while saying her story.

Well it really wasn't only the speakers that did a good job, it was also the music artists. The music artists that were there was Jesse Giddings, Shawn Desman, Tyler Shaw, Lights, Victoria Duffield, One Drop, and Allstar Weekend. They all had such great performances and sang really great songs. Well if I had to pick a favorite, I think I would pick Shawn Desman. When I told my parents that I saw Shawn Desman they told me a story about when they were younger. When they were younger Shawn Desman went to their church and he also performed and Portuguese parties like when there was special events. Well as you may know, he was not really famous back in the days but my parents told me that he was still a fabulous singer and is now really famous and plays such amazing songs. Another part that I also thought was pretty cool was when One Drop was doing her performance on the rope that was hanging from the sky. Well in the "RBC bag" that they gave us had this "RBC" bank drop necklace. Everyone took it out and put in on and when the speaker said "lights on" all of our necklaces turned on and the lights got darker and all you could see was One Drop and all of our necklaces glowing. It was pretty amazing to look at the stands and see everyone with their necklaces glowing. In my opinion, I thought that was a pretty great thing to come up with. Well these performances totally blew me away and I had the best experience of my life at We Day.

Well towards the end of the show the two men who invented We Day, which is Craig and Marc Keilburger, told us the three "laws". These were The Law of Few, The Law of Will, and The Law of We. After talking about these three laws, I learned that anyone, no matter who it is can make a difference and if we work together, anything can be possible. Craig and Marc also talked to us about a girl named Nellie Mclung who has made a difference in the past. She said "Never Retreat, Never Explain, and Never Apologize". She wanted to make women's rights better so she stood up and people started believing her. She proved that just because you are a girl, doesn't mean that you shouldn't have the same rights that the guys do. After Craig and Marc talked about Nellie Mclung, it reminded me of a girl in Afganhistan who believed that women's should have the same rights as men. This girl made a blog on how she thought that it shouldn't matter what gender you are, both male and female should have the same rights. Well after posting this blog, something very serious happened to her. She was on the bus and there was a group of males who shot her in the head and she was brought immediatley to the hosptial. This to me does not seem far what so ever. She just wanted to let the world know that both male and female should have the same rights. I think she was doing the right thing and did not deserve to get shot for any reason. Well we all know that these things happen out there and there are still some people who may still be doing these kind of things, this is why you should help make a difference so that it lets those people know that what they are doing is not right at all and no one should ever get treated the way this girl did.

After having the greatest experience of my life and having to learn such a great lesson made me really think that I really need to start making a difference. I learned that WE together can all make a difference know matter who it is and what you are going to do to make it happen. So help this world out today by making a difference and BE THE CHANGE!

My We Day Experience

Words can't describe how my day went on October 30th 2012. When I think back on this day, the only words that come to mind are amazing, mind blowing and it just impacted me on how I felt about whats happening in the world. As I woke up that morning I knew this was going to be an amazing and fun day! As I got to school and got on the transit bus to go to the MTS Centre it hit me that I was actually going to take apart of We Day. When I got there my feelings filled up with excitement! When we got there we put down our stuff and went out to buy our We Day t-shirts, we also got a picture with much music television host Phoebe and Scott! They were very nice and I also got a signed picture of her! After walking around some more a company called Sliver jeans co. was giving out these "pencil cases" made out of denim! it was really cool! We then ran out of time to look around and had to go back to our seats! and now my experience begins.

When we got down on our seats I looked around and saw all 18,000 students who wanted to make a difference, It made me feel like our generation can be the difference makers, just like the some of the speakers said! Some of the speakers that were there are Mikhail Gorbachev, Sam Kates, Justice Sinclair and the most inspirational speakers like, Hannah Taylor who made her own foundation at the age of 8 called The Ladybug Foundation, Spencer West who is the most amazing person ever that will do anything that he wants even with no lower body, HE redefines possible and my favorite speaker of the whole day was Molly Burke. She impacted me the most with her story, it almost made me burst into tears, if you didn't know her story it was about about bullying, she got bullied at the age of 14. She was the "outcast" and everyone made fun of her for standing up for what she believed in. Well one day the "popular" people asked her if she wanted to hang out with them, she knew they were bullies but she was desperate to have "friends", they took her into the forest and did I tell you she was on crutches because had a broken ankle? well, when they went into the forest they told her to sit down and they took her crutches and smashed them into the trees and then left her in the forest alone, I forgot to tell you one more thing, when she started talking, we took a moment of silence and the lights dimmed down, she then down us that, she. was. blind. She couldn't see all the 18,000 students and teachers that were there right in front of her, nor did she see who bullied her but that's what made her what she is today. She stands up for those who don't have the rights to speak. That's why we should take apart of a day where we don't speak at ALL. That day is called Vow Of Silence. There are also many other campaigns that we can take part of!

Not only were there speakers but also performers!!! like Tyler Shaw (The winner of a Much Music Contest), Justin Nozuka and Lights who were Juno Award Winners, Jesse Giddings a television host on muchmusic, and I'm sure you heard of AllStar Weekend, Shawn Desman and Victoria Duffiled! I loved all the performances but my favorite one had to be Victoria Duffield! She was amazing and I love her songs! There was also this amazing poetic circus performenamed One Drop! while she was dancing our "RBC bank drop necklace lighted up! it was so cool to see the whole MTS Centre lit up with those necklaces.

Near the end Marc and Craig Keliburger were talking, If you didn't know who they were they were the ones who invented We Day. They told us about the "laws". The three laws were  The Law of Few, The Law of Will and The Law of WE. I learned that if WE work together anything is possible and if we stand together side by side we can accomplish what we want to see in the world. He also told us about people in the past who made a difference, like Nellie Mclung who said "Never Retreat, Never Explain, Never Apologize.
She stood up for Women's Rights and thanks to her, women can vote and it showed that it doesn't matter what gender you are, if you want to do it, just set your mind to it!

Overall I had an AMAZING day, and especially cause I got to spend this experience with some of my bestfriends! I wish I could go again next year, maybe I could sneak in! justkidding! I hope that when I'm 16 I could volenteer to help We Day. I hope my experience would help influence you to help make a difference also!

My We Day Experience


My overall thoughts of this experience was just so overwhelming. When I woke up I was not expecting to be so impacted by this. When I arrived at school I was very excited to start my day. The bus ride there felt like it took so long. When we FINALLY got there I was so pumped up! As we were walking to go find our seats, we saw Phoebe and Scott from Much Music! I am a really REALLY big fan of Pheobe and was so excited when I saw her! Once I saw other people taking pictures with her I got even more excited!!! I went in line as soon as I could and my heart was pounding!!  I gave her the biggest hug ever and I felt like I was about to cry! I also got her autograph! I couldn't stop jumping and freaking out!

Once I calmed down a bit Jessica Tran, Jessica Da Silva, Mae, Perry and I went to go look at the T-shirts. I purchased the "We have the power" one. (:

 After that we took our seats and the show began. Once I heard Jesse Giddings song I freaked out and started screaming! I'm a HUGE Jesse Giddings fan. Once I heard his song, I already knew it was gonna be a great time. There were so many amazing performances and speeches! My three main performances were Tyler Shaw, Shawn Desman and my all time favorite.... LIGHTS! Tyler Shaw did an amazing job! He sang "Kiss Goodnight" (: Shawn Desman performed "Nobody does it like you" Mae and I were dancing and singing along. It was a lot of fun.

Finally, Jesse Giddings said "would you all get on your feet OR SHOULD I SAY TOES-" at this point I was already screaming because I knew it was going to be her.  Once Lights started her performance I started to cry. All though it sounds silly, Lights is my inspiration and my idol. Being able to see her preform for the second time makes me feel unbelievably blessed! She sang her song "Toes" and I sang along with her. I cried the whole time and I couldn't get a nice enough picture considering I was jumping, yelling and sobbing. I was feeling lots of emotions when she preformed. I think the people in front of me noticed because they kept looking at me like I was crazy, I could care less though. Once she finished I screamed "I LOVE YOU LIGHTS" (:  

Other than performances there were also phenomenal speakers. People like Hannah Taylor,  Mikhail Gorbachev, Spencer West, Molly Burke, and of course Marc and Craig Kielburger, and others. Everyone was very inspiring but Molly Burke is the one who probably impacted me the most. Molly told us that she hurt her ankle and had to use crutches. One day a group of "popular girls" asked her to hangout with them. She said she was so desperate that she agreed even though she KNEW they were bullies. They went to a forest and when Molly took a rest and sat down, she HEARD her crutches being slammed against a tree and she knew they were broken. Molly then told us to all to be silent,  for seven seconds.The lights dimmed. She told us she didn't tell us one detail. "This is how I see my world", I didn't know what she meant. She  then began to say "I am blind". Everyone was in shock and we all looked at each other. We were all surprised and definitely didn't expect it. Her voice was so strong and powerful! I didn't know how to react once she said it! She is very strong girl who has been through a lot. She was very inspirational.

Over all it was an amazing experience and it made me want to change the world! I want to make a difference. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Don't wait for the change, BE THE CHANGE.

My We Day Experience

Overall Impression. My overall impression of today started as happy in the morning expecting that i would just listen to people talk about making a difference in the world. Then after We Day it was life impacting. We Day means so much more to me now then it meant to me when I presented a week ago. We Day changed my life. My We Day experience was so awesome! I got to see Shawn Desman singing Nobody Does It Like You and i was screaming my but off! I was singing along with him. I got to see Tyler Shaw sing in person. And Victoria Duffield sing and dance to Break My Heart. She is so hot! i was so stunned. I got to see Lights perform her song Toes and it was amazing! She is really good at singing! and the last person that sang was Allstar Weekend. I was jumping up and down and just rocking out! Oh and when Jesse Giddings was in front of us i was screaming at him and calling him sexy! I saw Phoebe and Scott from Much Music. LOL On October 30, 2012 I was with my friends and we were waiting for the bus to come because we were going to We Day !!! I was with my good friends Jason, Issac, Jessica D, Selena, Mae and Jessica T, and twenty more friends of mine. The teachers with us was Mr. Dawson , Mr. Harbeck and Mrs. Wilson. So we got on the number 15 bus and headed for the MTS center. Once we got there we got into our seats. We sat down in the 106 section and we were pretty close. So then me and my friends settled down and went out to the booths to see the shirts and other stuff. And the first thing we saw were Scott and Phoebe from Much Music. We got in line to take a picture with them. So once i was next i hugged Phoebe and got that picture. The photographer said that the pictures will be on the Much Music website. Then we went to the booths so that Selena and Jessica T, and D could buy a shirt. After that we went back into our seats and waited for the show to start. There were so many people that talked to us from what i remember. Jesse Giddings was like the MC. and the mayor talked to us. Shawn Desman sang for us. Tyler Shaw sang acoustic for us, and Justin Nazoko. I think that was his last name. Then Molly Burke and Hannah Taylor talked to us about there lives. Spencer West and there were these two african guys and Mikhail Gorbachev . And then Victoria Duffield sang, and Lights performed, and the last band to perform was Allstar Weekend. This is what my day was like. Speakers. Who impacted you? One speaker that really impacted me was Molly Burke. She is a blind person who was blind at the age of 14 and was bullied by these girls at her school. She has impacted my life on raising awareness for bullying. And Spencer West he has taught me that anything is possible. He climb the tallest mountain in Africa. Spencer West taught me that there is no " Can't ". There were other speakers like Hannah Taylor, Sam Kates, Marc and Craig kielburg, Mikhail Gorbachev and many more. Music - Robb Nash, Tyler Shaw, Shawn desman, Victoria Duffiled, Lights , Justin Nazoka , and Allstar Weekend sang some of there songs.

Marie Ann's Proportion

Part 1- Definitions

Ratio: A ratio shows the relative sizes of two or more values.

Rate-A value describing one quantity in terms of another quantity

 Proportion-A part considered in relation to the whole.

Part 2:

  1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about 72 km/h.

Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week?

Emma saved $21.00 from her $75.00, she earned last week.

How: $0.28 x $75.00 = $21.00

Part 3:

Equivalent fractions: Whatever you do to the top, you do to the bottom. 
       x4                   x4
       3 = 12            16
       4    16             9    36

Part 4:

Part 5:

1: it is not fair.
2:no its not fair.
3: i made this choice because, even if he stole 100 dollars he still said that is stole the money voluntarily.
4;i would send him to jail for 2 years because he stole some money. and only for 2 year because he voluntarily confessed.


Breister's Proportion Post

Part  1

Ratio - Is a comparison of quantities that have the same units. The order of the words in a sentence indicates the order of the number in the ratio. Ratios can be written in several ways.

  • Words: nine circle compared to twelve or 9 to 12.
  • Ratio Notation:  9:12
  • Fraction 9      

Rate  - A rate is a comparison of two quantities measured in different units.

  • A rate can be expressed as a fraction, but cannot be expressed as a percent.
  • A unit rate is a rate in which the second term is one
  • To compare the cost of similar items a unit price is useful


ProportionIs a relationship that says that 2 ratios or rates are  equal.

Part 2

1.)  5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _72__km/h. 
 360 divide by 5 equals equals 72 km. 5 divide by 5 equals 1 so the answer is 72 km/h.2.)  Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How     much money did Emma save last week?

28 x 75 = 2100 so she earned about $21.00

Part 3

What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
3/4 = 12/16  or 4/9 = 16/32

On ways is to multiply or divide horizontally.

Ex.   3/4 = 12/16 you can multiply by 4 to equal this answer and 
 4/9 = 16/32 too.

Second way is to cross multiply 

Third way is dividing vertically 

Part 4

Find a video about using proportion.

Part 5

We are starting to engage in discussions about social justice. What do you think about this image below. Use the link to copy it into your post. Then answer the questions


  • 1 )Does this seem fair?
  • 2) With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair?
  • 3)Why have you made this choice?
  • 4)What would you have done if you were the judge?

  • Answer

    1) No because a guy stealing 3 billion dollars only got sentence for 3 year and a guy who have no money to feed his self just stole a $100 and got sentence for 15 years. He probably had no choice than to still because he was poor.
    2) This seems not fair in a lot of ways. First a guy just stole $100 and got sentence to jail for 15 years and the other guy for stilling a 3 billion dollar and only got sentence for only 3 years. It was like this the guy who stole 3 billion and got sentence for only 3 years and 4 month, or in fraction it would be $3 billion and 3.4 years, 3 billion divide by 787 days equals to $ 3 811 944.09/ day. That is how much he had stole if the sentence was only for a day. The homeless guy stole $100 and got sentence for 15 years, 100 divide by 15 equals to $0.01 or one cent/ day. If you compare how much they have stole for a day it would be the guy whole stole 3 billion would be  $3 811 844.09 and the homeless guy is $0.01, the different is way up.
    3) I had made this choice because stilling $100 and get sentence for 15 years and someone who stole 3 billion dollar got sentence for only 3 years this thing looks wrong in a lot of ways and I feel sorry for the guy a lot.
    4) If I was the judge I would sentence the guy who stole 3 billion dollars about 30 years and the guy who stole only a hundred dollar I would sentence him only in a month, because he did do something wrong and he need to learn not to do it again.

    Bonus Question

    The kid in the woods


    How tall is the trees in the forest?

    By knowing his age and he looks about 14 years old and the average 14 years old is the size of 5'3. Then I stack him up until its the same height of the tree and if I stack about 3 of him it would equal to 5.3 x 3 = 47.7 cm. The tree height is 47.7 cm.

    1. Does this seem fair? No this isn't fair.
    2. With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above.  Does it seem just and fair? It is not fair.
    3. Why have you made this choice? Just for stealing $100 dollars he gets 15 years? that is cruel.
    4. What would you have done if you were the judge? I would not send him to jail because he is trying to feed himself to stay alive.

    Jason's Proportion post

    Jasonp2's Proportion post 

    Part 1 

    Rate-Comapres 2 numbers measured un different units e.g. if if 10 hot dogs cos 15 dollars how much will 1 cost 

    Ratio-A ratio shows the size of two or more values e.g. 1:8 

    Proportion-Compares The relation between things e.g. size quantity number 

    Part 2- a) it takes 5 hours to travel 360 kris about 72km 1h 

    B) Emma saves 28 cents per every dollar she makes she made 75$ last week how much did she save 21 $

    Part 3 - what are 3 ways you can prove that equivalent fractions are true 
    1 horizontally 2 vertically and cross multiplication 

    Part 5 no it is not fair at all because they both stole but the homeless man only stole 100 dollars compared to 3 billion so that man that stole the 3 billion should get 15 years 
    what i know about porportion is that the homeless man is 54 so he gets 15 how old will he be when he gets out so i did this 54 +15 =69 so he might not be alive when he is out the year will be 2027 

    compared to the other guys is 55 and he get 44 months so that thats roughly 4 years so when he gets out he will be 59 so the other guy almost gets 10 more years than thing guy 

    I made this choice because even though they both did criminal activities one stole 3billion compared to 100 so thats not fair at all 

    if i was the judge i would have gave the homeless man 6 months because he did steal and the other guy 44 years 

    Stephen's Proportion Post

    Part 1:

    • proportion-the relationship of two variables whose ratio is constant
    • ratio- relationship between two numbers of the same kind
    • rate-a specific kind of ratio, in which two measurements are related to each other
    Part 2:

    1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h. The answer is 72km/h
    2.Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week? The answer is 0.28*75= $21 . Emma save $21 last week.

    Part 3:
    What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
    3/4 = 12/16  or 4/9 = 16/32

    1.) There are equivalent fraction because 3/4 * 4 = 12/16

    2.) 4/9 is not equivalent because 4/9 * 4 = 16/36.
    3.) If you use cross multiplication 3/4=12/16 there both 48.

    What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
    3/4 = 12/16  or 4/9 = 16/32

    1.) use equivalent fractions.

    2.) vertically.

    3.) crossed multiplication.

    Part 4:

    Find a video about using proportion and embed it in your post.  Make sure you select the small size of the video.

    Part 5:

    1.) Does this seem fair? 
    answer: no it isn't fair.
    2.)With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above.  Does it seem just and fair? 
    answer: no it's not fair.
    3.)Why have you made this choice? 
    answer: This isn't fair because the CEO stole 3 million dollars but was only sent in jail for 40 months while the homeless man gets 15 years in prison for just stealing $100.
    4.)What would you have done if you were the judge?answer: if i were the judge i will give the CEO 15 years in jail and the homeless man give for about 1 months in jail because 3 million is way more bigger that $100.

    Part 1

       Ratio - is a comparison of quantities that have the same units.

    Rate - comparison of two quantities measured in different units.

    Proportion - is a relationship that says two ratios or rates are equal.


    Part 2 

      1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.
    2.  Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week?

    Part 3

             What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
                      3/4 = 12/16  or 4/9 = 16/32

    Part 5

    1. Does this seem fair?  No, I don't think it's fair. 

        2. With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above.  Does it seem just and fair?  No it is not fair.

        3. Why have you made this choice? I've made this choice because if you read it again the CEO stole $3 billion and was sentenced to jail for 40 months while the homeless man robbed $100 and was sentenced for 15 years. If you change 15 years to months it would have been 180 months. The CEO stole more money and yet the homeless man was sentenced to jail longer. I just don't think the judge is being fair.

        4. What would you have done if you were the judge? If I were the judge first I would investigate and ask them why they stole or robbed money, maybe they have a valuable reason why they did. Then I would look at the amount of money they stole or robbed. I would then give them a fair period of time they would be staying inside the jail.
