My experience with NPAAMB started at the Opportunity Knocks Youth Career Conference in November 2015. Since then, I worked with my Youth Service Officer to find a summer placement. My Youth Service Officer also assisted me with scholarship applications such as Indspire. Because of NPAAMB, I had a great summer placement at the Southern Ontario Aboriginal Diabetes Initiative. After only two weeks I was given the opportunity to attend the AFN 37th Annual General Assembly where I got the chance to meet many distinguished elders and the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs.
