Ignite the Road to Justice Mission Tour 2011 – This August a team of Canadians led by Tara Teng, Miss Canada 2011, will be on mission igniting the road to justice. Their purpose is to educate and to stir up participation to end human trafficking. Tara will be joined by fellow abolitionist and former Madam, Tania Fiolleau, a worship band led by recording artist Kevin Boese, and other support human trafficking informants. The team will partner with key organizations in each community holding events that provide opportunities to educate and be a catalyst to stimulate participation to fight human trafficking. Their goal is to ignite a powerful, unified, grassroots movement that speaks up for the oppressed. Come partner with them and let your voice shout for justice all across our great nation of Canada!
I am fifteen years old and I will be entering grade11 this coming year. I come from a family of nine and I live in Langley, BC. I am heavily involved in various sports such as soccer, basketball, track and cross-country. My favorite game is catch phrase. My intense, competitive personality really comes out through this game. My favorite food is my grandmother’s delicious Egyptian stuffed grape leaves. In the little free time I have, I love to go off on my own and read. I love being outdoors in nature. This past year I did a six-day complete wilderness hike with my school. Traveling and meeting new people from diverse cultures has always been a passion of mine. If it were my way I would be with people all day everyday. I cherish time with my family and love big gatherings with all my extended family.
I first became interested in the terrible injustice of human trafficking after talking with my sister about her experience in Cambodia. She returned with heart-wrenching stories of girls who were in a rehabilitation home for trafficked girls. Ever since then, my heart has been geared towards raising public awareness of such inhumane perversity.
I immediately decided to take action by becoming involved in various social justice clubs on campus. As a member of student council, I also organized a line of speakers to inform the students that this atrocity is right in our own backyards.
My various achievements are rooted out of my gratitude and passion for Jesus Christ; he is my continual motivation for making efforts to bring about justice in my community. I am exited to see how God is going to utilize this tour as a tool to ignite the road to justice.
