Sope Owoaje

Iqaluit, NU

Sope lives in Iqaluit, Nunavut and was born in Lagos, Nigeria. She is currently in her 4th year of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and hopes to continue onto public health advocacy. Her passion for mental health and raising awareness stems from seeing loved ones struggle with their mental health in an environment with little resources/support for mental health. Sope is a Jacks Talk Speaker and Jack.orgNU chapter lead. As a network representative for Nunavut, she hopes to bring more awareness to that lack of culturally relevant resources and continue to break the silence on suicide in her community. When not in advocacy, Sope is practicing multiple languages and obsessing over all things Christmas.
