Major: MEd, Interdisciplinary studies 

Indigenous Community: Blood Tribe (Kainai)

Career Aspiration: Currently I am a Post-secondary Student counselor. I am seeking my Registered Social Work (RSW) status and with my Master's in Education, I hope to be able to assist our tribal students in succeeding in their studies. I would love to see more of our students succeed in getting their credentials rather than letting personal issues get in their way. I hope to eventually get one of the Director positions here at Red Crow College, the Directors here are hitting retirement age and I hope that provides me a better chance of moving up in the organization. The majority of my work experience has been working with students and community in Lethbridge. This is what I love to do, assist people in reaching their potential and connecting them to community resources. I hope to continue to do so. I want to be able to host study skills workshops and equip our students to move on in their studies at University and be successful.

Major: Power Engineering 

Indigenous Community: Saddle Lake

Career Aspiration: My goal right now is to get my 4th class power engineering ticket. Once I get that I want to work towards my 3rd class then 2nd class and eventually my 1st class. I hope I can inspire more people to get an education even if it’s just upgrading classes especially in the indigenous community it’s a blessing to get funding for education as a lot of other people struggle to pay for it. I would like to see more indigenous people to take advantage of that opportunity. You won’t ever regret improving your education.
