As an indigenous youth, native to the Plains Ojibway band near Manitoba, I have made it my goal through volunteer and work experience to implement changes that value sustainability, and that respect all people and facets of life. Two years spent living in a remote community of Australia’s outback exposed me to a way of living I hadn’t known to exist. This thirst for learning continued as I later enrolled at UBC and soon found myself studying Forestry, with a focus on Human Health and Well-Being. Combining my passions for the environment and for human health, for nature and for education, I now find myself four years into a Bachelor of Urban Forestry. It is my dream, and my ultimate goal to one day bring this knowledge into communities around the world that are normally restricted to such access, and to guide collaborative, sustainable solutions.
