Born in Japan, Ann Young spent most of her early life in Canada, living in Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles and Manila before calling her home in Washington, D.C.. She loves the many faces of the government, especially Senator Ted Kennedy, with whom she's functioned through recent years. "I get so frustrated with all the politics of the USA," she said. "The fact is that when we come to Washington, we need certainly to proceed. "Ann did not become a politician until Ronald Regan appointed her to the planks of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) as well as the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). At that time, she was a publication editor, writing books on political identity and people communication. Regan enjoyed her m ann young  er of literature, which dedicated to presenting Canadian issues and viewpoints regarding interesting stories, irrespective how these were presented. " If I had been asked to decide on a book," she stated," I'd have chosen novels on Canadian identity. "Ann was also an extremely good supporter of this Peace Prize movement, which she believed for a rewarding effort. " I did not take it that the decoration was so offensive," she said. " That which I felt was that it deserved a little attention in the free environment " In fact, she believed her participation from the Peace Prize was an important step on the way to becoming more involved in Canadian issues, especially post-apartheid. Ann continued to work closely with the famed author Margaret Anderson, writing hundreds of biographies, and producing a favorite television mini series entitled"When the Saints Go Marching in." In addition to her novel efforts, Ann was active from the political arena for a volunteer for the Canadian Peacekeeping Service throughout the height of the Cold War.

She repeatedly encouraged the inclusion of women in Canadian politics, so saying they will have the privilege to create their own decisions regarding the way their lives are conducted. She had been active from the divestiture movement against South Africa's Apartheid policies. In one of her experiments, she wrote,"There isn't any more any use crying over spilled milk. Let us face the truth...and you are going to know why I'm opposed to the use of force. "Ann Young has lived an intriguing and varied lifetime, throughout which she was a tireless advocate for a lot of causes. She had been tireless in her efforts to ensure justice and freedom for all Canadians. She was also a tireless promoter of peace and social justice. She's best known for her non-fiction works, which won awards in fiction and non fiction category throughout the world. Among her honors are the Order of the British kingdom to get solutions on Canada, the Order of the British Monarchy, and the Army of New Brunswick.
