While studying in Canada I look forward to enriching my education and art by uniting with the Canadian Inuit and First Nations people. As an Inupiat from Northwest Alaska, I hope to share stories of the past, as well as to aide in the preservation of our cultures through artistic outreach and self-representation. Through the friendships I make in Canada I would like to use my art to diminish the stereotypes that keep our people in the past. With this tremendous experience I will learn from the Canadian Inuit and First Nations new ways of empowering and enriching the lives of our people. I greatly look forward to the opportunity.
