What inspires you?
Change. I'm inspired by change - seasons, situations, attitudes, relationships, people, communities. I believe change makes us stronger, more resilient, and definitely more creative.

What is your advice to current Indigenous university students and the 2014 Indigenous graduates of the University of Manitoba?
Don't be afraid of change! Root yourself deep in your traditions, your family, and your communities. Be kind and patient with yourself and learn everything you can whenever there's an opportunity to do so (which, I'm learning is all of the time).
