Making a Difference Alone, Together

The theme of Spur 2015 is “Alone, Together.” To me that means that although we are independent individuals, we can make a difference together. As individuals, we can have a big impact in anything as long as we set our minds to it and remain dedicated, and together, we can influence others. When many individuals come together from different cultures and with different beliefs and values—whether coming together in family, community, school, or even at Spur—the result is a diversified impact. As a citizen, an individual, a mother or father, sister or brother, aunt or uncle, teacher, doctor, volunteer or however you choose to define yourself, we are all alone making a difference together, each with our distinctive ideas and goals.


Jaden Baragar is a student at St. Mary’s University who recently graduated with her Bachelor of Arts with a Double Concentration in Psychology and English and is very pleased to be back for another 2 years studying in the Bachelor of Education program. In addition to writing papers, my love is volunteering with, wee read, the Calgary International Children’s Festival and Humanities 101 program at St. Mary’s University which provides free University courses to low income adults. This is Jaden’s 2nd time participating in the Spur festival.
