I’m from Sapotaweyak Cree Nation, 600 kilometers northwest of Winnipeg and I moved here to start a new life. I was living in Siloam Mission when I heard about Pan Am Place on the news. Living here immerses me in a positive environment and helps me avoid unhealthy influences, abusive situations and drugs and alcohol. I’m staying on track by attending school, exercising, volunteering and eating well. I love the fact I am challenged in this program. I feel really healthy, energetic. It gave me a purpose to quit smoking.
