Hi my name is Emily Kakkee and I’m from Grise Fiord, NU. I was placed in Powell River, BC and it’s very beautiful here. I love the trees and the weather here. When I first went to Ottawa I had to travel alone which was scary because I never done that before. I am working at the BC SPCA I love it there since I get to be with animals. At the SPCA there is a lot of cleaning to do but it’s worth it by being with the animals and meeting new people.
I got to see amazing things I never get to see in Grise Fiord like going to logger sports with my placement buddy Julie we also got to go blueberry picking and plum picking which was exciting. I got to go hiking at a beach trail which was amazing. I loved seeing new things I never got to see and after the hike we went to play mini golf which was fun. I can’t wait to go home and tell everyone about my time at NYA.
