Fort Smith, NWT

I live in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories (Canada). I like to go out on the land and hunt, fish, snowmobile whenever I can. I also enjoy playing sports, everything from hockey to volleyball. I am looking forward to meeting new people in Europe and learning about how climate change is affecting other communities. I also like to explore different cultures and food!

My poster is on the effects of climate change on the Slave River. This topic personally impacts me and my family. We fish and live on the Slave River. I also want to create awareness about the health of the river and help to preserve it for future generations.
