“In high school you go to school with the same people for 7 to 13 years. Everyone has a preconceived image of you and it’s hard to change that ever. When I started going up to Nawakwa I was able to be whoever I wanted to be because all of the people were different and they didn’t know who I was. I was able to be who I really am because no one thought I should be acting in a particular way. When I went to college I was able to be who I was all the time because it was new and I didn’t have any expectations to live up to. The trees represent the place, Nawakwa, and growing getting thicker skin, bark, and growing in any way I want, branches.”
