I am an Inuk woman from Baker Lake, Nunavut populating 1700 people. Having worked with many different cultures in my background, I enjoy meeting and working with new people. I have much experience in the Department of Health in my hometown, mainly working with children and oral health since 2013. I enjoy working on projects such as winter clothing making, making jewellery.
I graduated at the Jonah Amitnaaq Secondary School in 2007. I hold a certificate from the Children’s Oral Health Program, which took place in 2013. I also have a certificate of Inuit Studies at the Nunavut Sivuniksavut Program in Ottawa which is affiliated with Algonquin College.
I am an Intern at McGill University and the University of KwaZulu-Natal through the International Aboriginal Youth Internship Initiative. The project focuses on youth engagement in rural communities in Canada and South Africa on sexual violence and high rates of HIV/AIDS.
