On the opening night of Oshawa Space Invaders, high school student Shaylin Conroy, a young Oshawa photographer mounted an exhibition that put a face to the many young people that benefit from the existence of the Refuge. She created a series of portraits of the youth that capture them in a positive light. Shaylin encourages you to learn more about the Refuge and the faces that society often chooses to disregard.
