Lilah Tells Us About Her Summer In Manotick, ON

July 20th, 2018

Hi, my name is Lilah! I’m 17 years old and this is my first summer participating in the NYA Canadian program. I recently graduated from Sir John Franklin high school in Yellowknife. This program has helped me gain so much knowledge on other cultures , as well as share my own. So far my time with NYA has been a wonderful learning experience. Experiencing life in the city for 5 weeks has been quite different from life in my community.

 I have been here for 2 weeks and have been working at “The Miller’s Oven” , which is a full service restaurant in the historic village of Manotick. It has been great to experience what it’s like to be a waitress and work as part of a team. This could help me get a job as a waitress when I get back home. The Millers Oven is a great work environment with homemade desserts, like the infamous  “mile-high lemon pie”. I work 6 hours a day, and have enjoyed serving customers and meeting people my age.

Since coming to Ottawa, I have been to the beach, walked around downtown in the Byward market, and went to the Northern lights show at Parliament. I also went to the Experimental Farm and got to see many animals such as cows, horses, goats, and a pregnant pig in a special care area.

Thank you for reading my blog!
