Hello! How are you? My name is Nicole. I am Huron-Wendat and Nipissing, as well as French Canadian. I am very excited to be a VYPER team lead. I was raised in Abbotsford BC. I am passionate about learning about indigenous culture, and advocating for cultural revitalization and equity for indigenous people across Turtle Island. I am currently a lead and an emcee at VYPER's Cultural Nights. I am studying Halq'emeylem at the University of the Fraser Valley, and I hope to become proficient in the language one day. I strongly believe in personal healing through reconnection with Indigenous culture.
I am also a strong advocate for the inclusion of neurodiverse people in schools and workplaces. I run my own charity called Mayday Club, where I work to empower young neurodivergent people in the hopes that they can achieve their full potential. I am a student of aviation at UFV, and I intend to become an aerial firefighter one day.
I am so excited to be part of VYPER, and I am looking forward to seeing the amazing work we can all do together! Entïio!
