Water First

“I feel like this Water First opportunity came at such a perfect time in my life. I was at a crossroads with what to do after college and I found myself at a desk job I was not happy with. I had seen the job posting that my mother sent me on Facebook, and that was that day I sent in my 2 week notice to finance department. On my last day I got word that I was offered the internship!“

My relationship with water has always been strong. Women are the water carriers. I have a passion to protect our water and environment for the future 7 generations ahead of us.

I want to learn as much as I can during this internship about safe drinking water and environmental protection for my community and all First Nations on Turtle Island. I can see myself in the future travelling to all First Nations and assisting with land and water monitoring and partake in projects for a sustainable future for all.”
