Hi, I'm Joseph Duncan, an Indigenous person from muskrat dam first nation, completing my master's degree in the social justice program at Lakehead University I certainly love to ice climb in the Thunder Bay area and Alberta and British Columbia. My true passion is hiking, so much, I hiked 900 miles on the Appalachian Trail in 2019. The best hiking trail in the world is the Pacific Crest Trail. In 2017 I completed my long journey hiking 2,650 miles on pacific crest trail, alleviating my trauma
Jennifer Chapman, Indigenous from Sachigo Lake FN in Northwestern Ontario. I am a student in the social justice program. I was drawn to social justice because I wanted to help make change but I needed to become more aware of the issues. "Change through compassion" I believe that because only genuine heartfelt compassion can bring about change.
