What inspires you?
I am inspired mostly by music. It is truly a universal language and speaks to everyone from all walks of life. It enhances our human experience by uplifting our souls.

What is your advice to current Indigenous university students and the 2014 Indigenous graduates of the University of Manitoba?
My advice to current Indigenous University students is to keep working hard and never rest on your laurels. Your university degree is only the first step to making your voice heard in the world, in whatever profession you have chosen. As you go forward in life, remember who you are, why you have chosen your career and what it is that you are setting out to accomplish. Stay focused and inspired.
