2022 FNTI GRADUATE
Program: Social Service Worker
Name/Spirit Name: Laura Somerville
Community: Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory
Teachings & Future Goals: I learned the power of connection to culture and how important it is to build a foundation of connections with the land. I learned to be respectful of others and how to receive respect. I learned my classmates have gifts to offer as I do and that it is important to listen.
For the last 2 years, we all learned to grow together and to lean on each other for support. I am so grateful for the atmosphere FNTI provides giving us a safe learning environment for all.
After graduation, I look forward to beginning my social work journey in the field.
Nia:wen for this wonderful experience!
