YSA Fights for Youth in NYC

LETHBRIDGE, AB -- Ginger Malacko, a 25-year old Lethbridge resident, is following in her mum's footsteps. Kim Malacko organised Youth for Action over a year ago, and has used the non-profit, non-partisan organisation to further the representation of youth who uphold "high moral values, a respect for life, religious freedom, sovereignty and the importance of family." The great part is that the organisation is run by youth. And Ginger is one of them.

When the group attends a special United Nations conference next month, Ginger will be staying behind to attend New York's City University, where she'll study political science and intern with United Families International.

Originally planning to attend art school, Ginger soon became unsure to what she wanted to do with her life. Her mum's organisation not only gave her something to do, but ignited an interest in her toward family issues and international politics.

Ginger has represented YFA before the UN three other times this year and will be attending the World Congress of Families in Mexico next year. As an intern with UFI, she will help open a UFI office in new York, and at the same time, stand before the UN as a representative of Real Women, a Canadian organisation devoted to women's issues. When her schooling is finished in a few years, Ginger will be able to use her BSc to become a paid lobbyist with UFI.

Yet with all this work and lobbying, Ginger finds time to do some other, less intense past times; like writing children's' books.
