Danielle Rogers

Danielle Rogers is 16 years old and lives in Inuvik, NT. Here’s how she’s taking the lead:

“I am taking a leadership role in my community by showing others that school is important and the sooner you get your work done the closer you are to finishing. One thing that I’ve learned by taking a leadership role is listening to what others have to say and try to understand where they are coming from. I like getting out on the land and connecting with my culture because I think it’s important, it’s a place for healing and not only that learning how our ancestors survived. One thing that I’d like to say to another northern youth is keep working hard, the harder you work the more opportunities you gain.”
