Yellowknife, NT
Shania Young grew up in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and is an indigenous woman from the Dog Rib Rae band. She is currently a practicing Registered Nurse in her hometown, having recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She has a deep passion for mental health that stems from personal experience and growing up in northern Canada where there are very little resources for mental health. When she is not out advocating for change, you can regularly find Shania talking about her dogs, Tikka and Stella, far too much.
