Letters of Thanks
Received from Emily Ann and Anna in late 2018.
My term and studies are going fantastic! I’m really enjoying what I am learning. This year I went into a different field of study. This year I am taking General Arts and Science - Aboriginal Studies. I have already learned so much and just finished some mid-term exams and tests. I am looking forward to using my knowledge to better my community in the future.
What is different this year is that I have a ton of opportunities to get to know my classmates, which makes me more comfortable in college. As a class we have gone camping, had a picnic, get-together dinners. Last year was tough on me, including the strike. This year is a new beginning as I get to gain knowledge and see what my future holds.
Thank you for all the support you all have given me and continue to do so.

University has been great so far. I have done a few trips since coming here, attending screenings of a movie I was a part of called The Grizzlies in Toronto and in Montreal. I am currently doing well in all of my classes and the adjustment has been fairly easy in comparison to what I was expecting when I left home!
Next week I will be flying back up to Iqaluit to speak at a YWCA: Power of Being a Girl conference, which I am greatly looking forward to as well. I have also been contacted by another university professor in Ontario to speak to students about the Inuksuk High School lunch program I helped implement last year and food security in the north.
Overall university has been very successful, I have met many lovely people, and I have had the opportunity to go above and beyond expectations for myself.
I would just like to mention that I am very grateful for this scholarship you have given me as it has been a tremendous help in easing the stress of the cost of university and has truly made the transition much smoother from Iqaluit to Ottawa.
Thank you once again,
- Anna Lambe
