Title: Amber Pashuk – “The John Piper Show CKST-AM 1040”
The Canadian edition of Readers Digest magazine selected ten university students of the class of 2000 as ‘leaders of tomorrow.’ Amber Pashuk, one of those chosen, answers questions concerning her views on society and the role of young people in shaping public policy. Pashuk begins by explaining the process of her selection from among Canada’s students. Richard Alvert [?] of the Ontario legislature asked university presidents to each nominate three students whom they considered ‘leaders of tomorrow.’ These students were asked to describe their vision for the country, and Pashuk’s entry was among those selected. She is driven by a keen awareness of injustice, especially injustice against children, and plans to enter the legal profession to become an agent for change. According to Amber, many politicians with high ideals at the beginning of their career often give up those ideals because they have lost their vision; they have lost a hope for something bigger. Pashuk desires to continue to seek for vision. When asked about the role of minority rights, Pashuk says that the idea behind political correctness and minority rights is that people listen to each other, but this process has become exaggerated to the point that it has become a barrier to communication. She began to move beyond the easy answers at a young age, thanks in large part to her mother. She credits her professors with investing their time and energy, guiding her steps, and teaching her life lessons in recent years. She sees her greatest accomplishment in her university career as investing herself in learning through academics as well as community life, and hopes that those experiences have prepared her to make a contribution to society. Her most embarrassing moments include bad grades caused by bad attitude toward Physical Education. She explains the work of a president’s intern as a mentoring process whereby she can learn from those with years of practical experience. Pashuk recognises that there is responsibility involved in being someone with leadership skills, as leaders have to give up hedonistic desires and be prepared to make sacrifices.
