An interview with the returning interns: Irene De Souza

Why do you want to work with CCBR a second Summer?

My internship with CCBR last summer was by far the hardest, yet most rewarding thing I have ever done with my life. The experiences that were had, the people I met and interacted with during activism, and everything I learned were valuable life-changing lessons that helped me come to the decision that this work is something I want to make a significant part of my life.

I have never felt quite so encouraged and inspired, and yet so angry, in my life!  All day, my phone has been going virtually non-stop as messages come in via texts, Facebook, emails, and phone calls.  And all in response to a simple Facebook post I made this morning.

As the administrator of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR), I receive all the emails sent to our general email account, and yesterday when one came in from a counselor of a pregnancy care centre, I immediately forwarded it to all of my colleagues, and then responded to the email asking if I was allowed to make a Facebook post about it.  This morning, she responded giving me permission so I promptly made a post saying:
