The greatest lesson Waneek Horn-Miller ever learned was that “anything is possible.” Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome after being stabbed at the age of fourteen, she could have recoiled from life. Instead, she embraced it like never before. On stage, she traces the powerful journey she took from beleaguered youth to star Olympic athlete to one of the most articulate and vibrant voices in Canada today. A model of perseverance, good-natured humour, and soulful wisdom, Horn-Miller inspires audiences to follow their own dreams, fight for their heritage, and achieve their full potential in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Hosted by The Winnipeg Foundation in partnership with the Manitoba Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Council and the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sports Achievement Centre.
