I became a Habitat home owner nearly four years ago, and it felt like winning the lottery.
It’s been one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had.
Having the security of owning my own home has allowed me to focus on so many other things in life. I don’t have the huge stressor of where my family’s going to live or if we can afford to live there anymore.
Women Build is special to me because it was my first introduction to what would be my home. The experience of seeing all of those women supporting each other and the teamwork, the laughter; the tears – it was incredible and liberating.
To be involved in Women Build, you are literally changing someone’s life. I think it’s a gift to be able to do that and an honour to be part of someone’s life in such a huge, instrumental way. And it’s fun too!
I’d create a superpower that lets you have all the superpowers, depending on what you need in that moment. I’d have the power to say, “Right now, I need to be able to fly!” So, I’d push a button and I’d fly!
Every woman has the power to change the world. Register for Women Build YYC today.
