I wanted to join the program with Water First because I believe water is life and everyone should have access to clean drinking water. I always knew our First Nations People struggled with clean drinking water, and when the opportunity came up to work with Water First, I saw it as a way to one day help with the remote communities within Northern Ontario. I’ve also always cared about our Mother Earth and enjoyed helping the environment. I thought about continuing with my education in the mental health field, but I saw this as a different opportunity – to learn how and where exactly we are getting our water from and how it is being treated so it is safe to drink.
