Having the opportunity to meet and collaborate with young change-makers from around the world, inspired her to create tangible change back home in Canada. Drawing from her own experiences, Apefa continued to speak out about the barriers and micro-aggressions she faced as a young Black woman, collaborating with businesses and local organizations to create programming and advise on policy to support women and youth. Using her experiences at the U.N. as a ‘spring point’, she committed her focus to advocacy, gaining the opportunities to collaborate with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, the British Council, the University of Waterloo, Women’s Health in Women’s Hands Community Health Centre, WE DAY and many other organizations to create opportunities and build the capacity of young Canadians, while completing her undergraduate education at the University of Toronto.
