I am passionate about High Resolves because…

I have a passion for creating change, through High Resolves empowering the youth of today to be better citizens and help others see and find their own greatness. It excites me to see the next generation of global citizens who are motivated to enrich the world we live in.

She has a strong commitment to empowering students to be the leaders of tomorrow and a belief that all young people can make a difference to their own lives.

I am passionate about High Resolves because…
I have seen first-hand the impact we have on young people. It is an awesome thing to experience when you see a young person feel empowered to step up and create the change they want to see in the world!

Carrie Silver
Program Manager, Queensland

Growing up in one of Canada’s largest and most diverse cities, Carrie developed a great curiosity about the cultures that surrounded her, which led her to study world religions, modern history and population geography and make the brave leap to move to Australia in her late teens. She has taught history, geography and social and community studies in Queensland classrooms, and holds a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching from the University of New England.

I am passionate about High Resolves because…
At High Resolves I have the privilege of connecting with young people and finding out what they are passionate about. Every day brings a new story from amazing young people who inspire me, and I’m excited to see what this generation will do to make the world a better place!
