When it comes to opportunities for education and learning, post-secondary schools in Winnipeg take it one step further by offering access programs, professional development opportunities and student support services to help ensure students successfully complete their studies.
Student awards also help facilitate this success. Receiving the Derek and Polly Riley Bursary allowed me to complete my bachelor of Social Work degree at the University of Manitoba’s William Norrie Centre without having to worry about finances.
My hope for the future is to graduate this spring with a Master’s of Social Work based in the Indigenous Knowledge degree, and to continue working with First Nations people.
