I am twenty-two years old, living in Inuvik, taking a course at the Youth Centre. This course is called “New Horizons Skills Link Program.” This program is showing us how to work in the real world. There is a lot of stuff to do in this program so we never are bored, and can never say we get bored. I am trying my hardest not to miss or be late. Those are my most important goals for now.
This program has given me the confidence and self-respect that I really didn’t have. I am a young woman who has dreams to follow but the road is going to be bumpy, so I better put my strap on. As I start on these dreams I’m going to be and act more mature, and try to straighten myself out.
