Project: Who Wanda Was

My project is on Wanda Wyatt and Wyatt heritage properties in Summerside, PEI. I talk about her life, goals and how she made a difference in the lives of women today.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I’ve learned is that Wanda was very important to Summerside. She donated to so many organizations throughout the island and without her some of these organizations might not be around today.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I’ve learned that you can make a difference. Although women were not allowed to be lawyers or have anything to do with law, she became the first woman on PEI to study law.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Women weren’t allowed to do anything but cook, clean and take care of the children. In today’s generation women can almost do anything they want to. Without Wanda Wyatt women might not have the chance to achieve their goals.
