Meesha is a Inuk and French/Italian woman that is from Taloyoak but grew up in Yellowknife. She did her schooling in the NWT so far and has been in “on the land” university programs with Dechinta. She applied for Students on Ice because her family and ancestors are from Nunavut, specifically the Pond Inlet region. She is also participating in SOI because of her love of science, nature, biology, animals, the environment and her culture. She is looking forward to this amazing opportunity to see the beautiful land that her people are from and to learn from the land and people aboard the ship.
