The eleventh speaker was Josh Callahan. He shared his story, which took him from BC to Japan as a Preschool teacher. While he was there, he helped open a new school and learned he needed to advance his education.

He was blown away by the people of the community, children were playing on the streets, cars were stopping at crosswalks. He was received by a welcoming community.
“My platform is to be proactive, and have teamwork. And the only way we’re going to have that is by defining a vision for Kitimat, where we’re going to be in 10 years. What happens in these next three years will determine where we will be in the future,” said Callahan.
