Ali Fatehzadah has taken on his post as Vaughan’s fifth youth city councillor with some lofty goals and the knowledge that he’s now a role model. “I’m of Afghan descent, my parents are from Afghanistan,” the 17-year-old Maple High School student said recently. “I’m a proud Canadian.”
It began with a desire to do something special for Christmas this year, a drive of some sort for the benefit of a worthy recipient. From there, Sabrina Bruno and Michael Tamburini, good friends and Father Bressani CHS schoolmates, organized and launched their Sick Kids Christmas Toy Drive.
Barely two weeks on the job, Vaughan’s new Youth City Councillor is already busy representing her constituency while she breaks new ground. Sabrina Bruno was sworn in Sept. 8, the fourth high schooler — and the first female — to take the post as the voice of Vaughan’s youth.
Vaughan’s newest representative, Sabrina Bruno, took up her post as Vaughan’s youth city councillor last Monday.
Michael Radov has once again been named to the youth city councillor position, filling the vacancy left following the end of Steven Xu’s term in June.
