“I have worked with aboriginal companies in the past including Odawa’s 510 Drop-In for homeless or at risk of homelessness and Metis National Council. I have experienced homelessness for several years from my late teens to early 20’s. I suffered from addiction for most of my life but was always reaching for something better. Through all my hardships, there have been people and places to help me, and I hope to be able to do that for people who need it most. In the future I plan to go back to school and further my education. My dream is to help people who are suffering with addiction learn that there is a better life out there for them, it is possible, and that they matter.”
