Sophie Tukalak

My name is Sophie Tukalak. I am a current university student at Concordia in Montreal. I am studying First Peoples Studies and Human Relations. With the accomplishment of a double major, I want to return to Nunavik to try and help create change for the next generations and showcase that anything is possible. My interest in this program is also correlated to my desire to initiate change for my fellow Inuuqatiit. The world is rapidly changing and while Inuit have learned to adapt quickly, the environment is the most important aspect for our culture. Raising awareness, creating effective actions and preventive care is what we needs to be taught to the younger generations so that the next 7 generations do not have to struggle with lack of resources and have healthy homes and lives as we do today.
