Hello! My name is Karly Wilson and I am an MNO Infinite Reach Facilitator for Carleton University. I am in my third year of a Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Nutrition with a minor in Biology. I have also obtained a college diploma in Pre-Health Sciences/General Arts and Science at Algonquin College. Coming from a small town in southern Manitoba, I understanding how overwhelming and challenging it is to be on your own in a big city and outside of your comfort zone. I am the second oldest of six kids and the first to attend university in my family. I enjoy reading, crafts (dreamcatchers recently), exercising and my golden retriever, Lola. This past summer I was hired by the Aboriginal Summer Student Program at Health Canada and had the opportunity to learn more about my Métis culture among other young Métis students. This school year, I have a craving to extend my knowledge and understanding and hope you will join me on the journey. I am very excited to meet other Métis students here at Carleton University! If you need any help or advice or would like to chat, please don’t hesitate to contact me: karly_wilson112@hotmail.com

My name is Jordi Playne and I am a fourth year Sociology undergrad student at Carleton University. Aside from attending post-secondary full-time I also compete competitively for the university as a figure skater therefore my life can be very chaotic at times. However I manage to make it all work. This past summer I had the opportunity to work with the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) which presented itself to be one of the most gratifying and exuberant summers I have had. I am very enthusiastic and have a very positive outlook on life; therefore, it is rare to see me without a smile on my face. In conclusion, I am very excited and honoured to be a MNO Infinite Reach Facilitator and look forward to meeting and connecting with so many Métis youth from around the province.
