I’m proud of my background and accomplishments. I was raised by my grandmother in the Mi’kmaw community of We’koqma’q, went to an on-reserve Mi'kmaw Kina'matnewey school and finished with top honours, graduated cum laude from Saint Mary’s University, earned my LL.B. from Dalhousie Law School, got called to the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, having performed my affirmation in English and Mi’kmaw. I take great pride in the work that I do in health for our First Nations communities as well as a LesMills instructor in the city. I’ve won gold medals in races for We’koqma’q and completed marathons with a goal to qualify for, and run in, Boston. Friends in the city reach out to me re Mi’kmaw language, culture, and engagement, and I’m only too happy and eager to help educate them about my peoples’ history. When peers and Elders acknowledge me as a role model for our youth, it means the world to me.
Now for my next accomplishment in life; I’m going to honour the Mi’kmaw Nation, LesMills International, and my ancestors, and be the first Mi’kmaw LesMills Instructor to kill Jason Voorhees.
