My Life Story (1)
One of my dreams was to visit the Arctic. When I start to read Jack London’s book, this dream becomes stronger.
NWT 2016- 2022 *
The dream became real, and I arrived in a small town in Nunavut.
I had a brain freeze between the airport door and the car. My hat was not warm enough. I said to myself, “Welcome to the North. And after, during my drive, I didn’t see a tree and found out we lived above the tree line.
I began working in a school as a substitute teacher and reestablishing the school library, as well as doing very close work with the community. I had the opportunity to visit various communities as well as Capital City, Iqaluit.
It was an amazing experience to understand culture and lifestyle with people that had a big heart and shared their food always and helped you.
My funny experience was on the shore when I went to catch the fish. My first fish I had a hard time catching and swimming with, and my wife was just laughing. lol, but finally I caught the fish.
Unfortunately, although I was deeply involved with the community, I have to leave almost after 2 years because of one of my close family members’ passing.
This community motivated me to upgrade and finish my counselling programme in Vancouver.
