Yesterday was one of the best days of my life. I received the highest civilian Canadian honour from Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaelle Jean, Governor General of Canada, who is Queen Elizabeth II’s representative. It was held in Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city.
The ceremony itself was warm and wonderful. I was particularly happy to receive the honour from Mme. Jean who is an incredible inspiration to all Canadians, women in particular.
And I’ve made a vow to finally learn French fluently so that I can represent my country properly!
