It’s Okay to Say “No”

Co-operative Education

Frankly, I am terrible at saying “no.” Maybe it’s a strong work ethic that has been etched into my existence since I was a child.

Into the Wilderness: My Co-op experience with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Yukon Region

Life Experience

The Yukon was always a mystery to me; something I didn’t know very much about. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and have never been up North before.
