My name is Sky and I am 16 years old. I love crafts and being creative. I spend all of my free time painting, drawing in my journal and making jewelry. My most favorite place to be afterschool is the Girlville DIY Centre.

When I am creating I feel connected to my inner creative self and also my Aboriginal culture which is very important to me because I have been rather disconnected from it these past few years. When I was 10, my parents moved off the reserve into the city. Since then I don’t get to see my Kokum (Grandma) as much as I use to and she is the one person in my life that spends time teaching me about our family history and traditions. I really miss her but find when I am being creative and artistic I feel connected to her and it helps me remember all the wonderful things we have done together.

I have always felt “different” and this made it tough to make friends and connect to people in my life but my Kokum taught me it is okay to be different and to embrace those differences because that is what makes me, me!
