Alexis was one of the five successful candidates in her application for the Summer student employment program, she started the 8 week program on July 10th 2017.

As part of the summer student employment program Alexis has participated in a variety of workshops, helped in the workplaces: finance office, health centre and administration office.

Alexis has said of the mural she has helped work on that

“it is a very powerful piece of art in our community, it tells the story of what the community has been through, what we have fought for and what we continue to fight for for our territory.”

Getting up every morning and being able to work with the four other students on the program is an inspiration for Alexis, being able to make plans to bring the community closer together. Alexis is an outstanding athlete, a team player and is great with kids.
