Hello, my name is Pauloosie Alorut and I am from Igloolik N.U. Me and my Placement Buddy Samuel Ootoova are in a beautiful place called Kingston O.N. My work placement is called Habitat for Humanity Restore, which is a second hand store that supports the Habitat for Humanity organization. The volunteer’s and worker’s here are great.
My host family are Jason, Sherri Mckane their daughter, Morgan who are a lovely and caring host family. They are like my parents now. There are a lot differences between the south and my hometown including a lot more public places, crowds of people and traffic, different languages and culture.
My favourite thing to do while on placement was go kayaking, because it was fun and it reminded me of my ancestors who used similar boats in the summer very year. Overall I really enjoyed my experience with the NYA Canadian program and would recommend it to anyone else wanting to broaden their opportunities.
