Outstanding Young Person Award goes to Allirah McIntyre

Allirah with certificate

City West Housing resident Allirah McIntyre was presented with the Outstanding Young Person Award and prize gift card recently for her engagement in the local community.

Allirah is a 16-year-old high school student who participates in City West activities to contribute positively to others in their building, such as assisting with the communal garden. She works at a local café on weekends and has volunteered at a nearby medical centre.

Allirah enjoys all things creative and helping people whenever she can – neighbours, strangers, family and friends.

When asked how she felt when told she received the award, Allirah said, “I was so shocked! I didn’t expect to win, but I’m so grateful. I’ve already started using the gift card to buy Christmas gifts for my family and I’ve also treated myself – thank you, City West!”

The Community Impact Awards celebrate City West Housing residents who are positively contributing to the people around them.
