Makayla Taylor ʔaq̓am

I first heard about the Guardian’s In Training program nearly 2 years ago and have actively and fully participated in it since I was first introduced. I have witnessed and participated in several activities such as: building fire guards with British Columbia Wildfire Services, what a journeyman mechanic does at Fiorentino Brothers, interviews with several knowledge holders from the community such as Cheryl Casimer, Sophie Pierre, Jim Miller, and ʔakinmi Resources owner, Allan Hunter. I hope that my leadership provides positive role modelling to the up and coming youth within my community.
