Hello, my name is Karen Benoit. I am 16 years old, and I was born on March 6th1998 in Inuvik, NT. I have lived in Inuvik for 6 years and moved to Aklavik after that, which is where I still live. I am a grade 10 student at Moose Kerr School and will be attending grade 11 in the fall. My favourite subjects include: science, art, English, and math. When I am not in school, some of the things I do to enjoy myself are: being with my friends, being home alone sometimes, going for truck/4-wheeler rides, watching movies, traveling out on the land, and walking around town with my friends. In the future, I see myself getting into a post-secondary program having to do with travel and tourism. I am currently on the Students on Ice Expedition while working a summer job with Parks Canada. I am trying to set myself up for the future, and am very happy to be here and make new friends.
