2021 SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS

Ryli Michalczuk
Civic Leadership Scholarship Winner

My name is Ryli Michalczuk and I am currently taking the Commerce program at University of Victoria, remotely from my home in Windsor, Ontario. I have been running my own nonprofit business, called Ryli's Change Making Creations, where I sell baked goods and crafts that I make in order to raise money for the less fortunate in my community. To date I’ve given back over $15,000 in our city. For this year, I will be hosting my 7th annual pizza party for Street Help Homeless centre, with money I have raised. Like last year I will be hosting this event virtually, because of COVID-19 protocols, but I will still be able to connect with the people who attend via video.
