My name is Willie Iqaluq and I’m from Sanikiluaq Nunavut.

This is my first trip with NYA and it’s pretty fun. I had a lot of fun at the camp in Ottawa doing activities and meeting people.

This was my first time travelling to Windsor, Ontario and it’s pretty fun. Of course I had to try some new food that I never tried before and I really liked the food. When we drive by the river we can see the states/Detroit from Windsor. We went to the beach and it was a lot different from home and it was fun of course.

I’m having a good time at my work placement at the Windsor Public Library and people there are really nice. I have different schedules there like I do some bib service, tech hub, paging, helping people that work there and helping with other people that are volunteering. My favourite one is tech hub because there’s science stuff there that we do and some kids like to go play there and I learned a lot of things in library that I never knew.

Things I find different here in the south is the weather lol. It was pretty hot for me for a couple of days since I got here but now I’m all used to the heat and the bugs. I saw a lot of bugs and they are all different from where I live.
