“Hello Canadian JDRF! My first day and a half in beautiful Washington went splendidly! As soon as dad and I arrived we started running around to see as many monuments and museums as we could. Monday morning we had a meeting at the Canadian Embassy, we had a wonderful tour of the building, which was extremely exciting. Within the Embassy there are many beautiful exhibits of Canadian art, a beautiful view of Capitol Hill and an incredible echo chamber surrounded by a round fountain. If you ever visit Washington DC, I highly recommend seeing it! Check in for CC13 was at noon, upon arrival and check in we were greeted with many smiles, I met a lot of great people I will definitely be keeping in touch with. As an international delegate, I am given a US “buddy”. My Buddy Caroline and I have a lot in common, and I think over the days we have here we will become great friends! This morning we will be able to meet with many of the celebrities that have come to be role models, something I’ve been looking forward to! I’ll check in again soon!”
