Winnipeg, MB, Canada

I’m just a small town girl living in a lonely world. But I love meeting people and traveling and learning languages. I’m graduating from École Edward Schreyer School where I have been in the French immersion program. My favourite classes are Indigenous studies, global issues, and chemistry. In the fall I will be moving to Abbotsford, BC to begin my BA in multicultural studies at Columbia Bible College. I am very interested in international relations and politics. I hope to one day help defend the rights of First Nations people in Canada. For now I scoop ice cream and mop floors, but you have to start somewhere.
