AYC 2011: First Part of my Keynote Talk (Canadians, Asians, and Myths About Canada)

Here are the first 15 minutes of my keynote talk at AYC (Archdiocesan Youth Conference) for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. AYC took place at the Hilton Americas Houston Hotel and had over 2,100 participants, making in the largest diocesan youth conference in the United States. I was blessed to serve as a keynote for AYC along with Fr. Tony Ricard, Cooper Ray, and Jason Evert.

This is the first part of my talk on “Growing on Discipleship”, but don’t expect to hear much about growing in discipleship in this video…haha. I spend some time having the audience get to know me.

I intro my family, talk about famous Canadians and famous Asians, and then I debunk and dispel myths and stereotypes about Canada. Lastly, I start to move into the “meat” of my talk by sharing my experience of the Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver in June.
