When Sophia was invited to speak at the U.N. Gender Equality Forum Aprip 2017 in Toronto, AWSN was pleased to assist with a travel bursary.  The event summary is provided here.  Sophia's goals for increasing the ability of youth to develop and run their own companies has led to her increasing role in public speaking.  This has led to her mentoring at the 2017 Power to Choose Aboriginal Youth Summer STEM camp.

 

Additional support for Sophia's trip was provided by the Alberta Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and by AWSN former co-Treasurer Jim Thomson.  Thank you!
