Describe a time when your mobile phone made you feel powerful.

"One click. That's all it takes to send a letter to my member of parliament on the causes closest to my heart. Before getting more deeply involved with lobbying in parliamentarian offices, federal offices, and working side-by-side with national levels of government to introduce, advocate, and lobby for the passing of certain bills and legislations, it began with my mobile phone. Sending pre-written letters via email or by text to my local representatives via websites of the largest non-profit advocacy groups. My mobile phone empowered me to take part in these simple opportunities available to anyone for what would make a difference to everyone."
