My home and my heart are in Listuguj, Quebec, one of the largest Mi'gmaq communities. That is where I grew up, near the water and the mountains, it's where I went to school and where I nourished my knowledge of community life. I've always been a creative person, it's in my blood. My parents are both very creative people, and I'm so grateful to have had them push me to not waste my talents.
In 2007, I moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to attend Dalhousie University where I grew as a person, was able to make life long connections and really figured out who I was. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in International Development Studies and worked at different places in the city, always wanting to help my people.
I love to write creatively, whether it be poems, short stories, songs, or love letters. I sing, but am too shy to do so in public. I'm a handywoman, I'd prefer a power drill over flowers any day. I'm a lover AND a fighter. That doesn't mean I'll fight over someone, but I love fighting the good fight. I've always been an activist (I get it from my dad). I'm pretty tiny, only reaching 5 feet but I'm strong in my convictions, and my heart is as big as a house.
I've been beading for a few years now after someone close to me handed me a kit of beads and some thread. I'm self taught, which has taught me the patience required to do this craft. I enjoy teaching others how to bead. In our culture it's not about competition, but rather about sharing our ways, our stories, our advice and our teachings, so there's nothing that makes me happier than seeing someone I taught create something beautiful.
I love comedic high pitched voices, being outside in summer downpours, spending time with animals and I love every kind of music imaginable. If there is anything else you want to know about me, just ask! Thank you for reading, and thank you for visiting my page.
In Peace and Friendship,
