Shania Young

Yellowknife, NT
Shania was born and raised in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and is an indigenous woman from the Dog Rib Rae band. She is currently a practicing Registered Nurse after graduating with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Aurora College/University of Victoria. She has a deep passion for mental health that stems from personal experience and growing up in northern Canada where there are few resources for mental health. With the high prevalence of mental illness and addictions in the North, Shania hopes to get people talking about these issues and to see all generations embrace their mental health. When she is not out advocating for change, you can regularly find Shania talking about her two dogs - Tikka and Stella - way too much.
