Youth Facilitator

“Embrace all your identities, ogichidaag nindoonjibaa – I come from warriors… growing up I struggled with my identity, trying to find where I fit. Experiencing discrimination, racism and micro aggressions within my own communities and outside. I struggled to navigate through my internal traumas of anxiety, depression & anger as result of my external experiences navigating through homelessness, verbal & physical abuse. I found freedom in telling my story and reclaiming my Indigeneity and healing from my experiences as a way to light the path for others to find their great solace.”
