Marina in Castlegar

August 2nd, 2019

Hi, my name is Marina.

I’m from Qikiqtarjuaq, Nunavut. I am a participant in the NYA Canadian Program 2019. My work placement is at Doukhobor Museum.

I’ve met kind people there they’re so welcoming. I love it when they show me how lovely they are. When I learned about Doukhonor’s it makes me want to keep my culture alive. My host parents are amazing to be around. I had a lot of fun going to other places and go hiking, swimming and many more.

I can’t thank enough to Northern Youth Abroad for giving us this opportunity to experience here in down south with amazing people.

    Marina is a wonderful young women. It has been a real pleasure to have her in our home. We learned a lot from her about life in the north.
