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.
