CRE – Tiivimasiu Qisiiq

I wanted to attend the Canadian Roots Exchange National Gathering because I wanted the opportunity to talk about youth issues in northern communities. I hoped to make new friends with people who are Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Since I work in the Youth House in Kangiqsujuaq, I hoped to learn how to engage the local youth with appropriate activities.

What I liked about the delegation was getting to exactly this! I made new friends, the activities and workshops made me happy and it really gave me flashbacks from when I was on the expedition. I love opportunities to make new friends because I know they will be my friends forever. They understand me and they are always there for me when I need them.

I am looking forward to seeing more alumni in the future with opportunities like delegations! Also to keep connected with Students on Ice!
