I strive to use my time and energy to make the positive impacts wherever I go. I have had many experiences that have filled my heart with love and my mind with skills.
I come from a large farming-family in Southern Saskatchewan. I am very grateful for my father who has taught me so much about hard work, raising animals and fixing things. Because of him, I can fix a fence, build a bird house, change the oil in a car and raise a sick baby calf.
After attending summer camp for five years as a kid, my first job was as a camp counsellor for three summers. Camp taught me so much about the value in community and leadership. Being a spiritual and social role model for kids was the most empowering experience I have ever had.
After high school I moved to the beautiful Lake Louise, Alberta to enjoy snowboarding in the winter and hiking in the summer. In Louise, I was fortunate to meet people from all over the world and work in a restaurant and bar called Explorers. Here I became very confident with my serving abilities and making a fool of myself while hosting the weekly karaoke night.
This past summer I went tree planting in Northern British Columbia. Planting trees for 3 months definitely ranks #1 for toughest things I have ever done in my life. Through this experience I pushed my physical and mental limits to the extreme and reinvented what I thought to be hard work. It was soul full-filling to dedicate my sweat and energy back into mother earth, and again meet amazing people from all different backgrounds.
I believe every connection and experience is valuable and I think the essence of work away embodies that belief as well. I am planning to travel to Vietnam and Thailand (March-May 2019) before I start at the University. Thank you so much for your consideration, I hope to help towards some good causes!
