I'm beyond grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way since working with the nation. I woke up this morning to find out that our new venture has made it on the cover of The Pique Newsmagazine! After a not so humble victory dance it got me thinking... Why am I doing this? Why is it so important to want to make a difference?
The part I enjoy the most is empowering communities through mentorship. I love to watch the staff I work with learn new skills but take pride in their own culture. To see the beauty in what the traditions, language and songs represent and take a stand for what they believe in. Walking in as a stranger 5 years ago and now feeling like I’m part of the family, more than anything that’s what I want to salvage.
As we embark on this new venture please feel free to follow our adventures here or by following us on social media.
