MacKenzie Demerah

My name is Mackenzie Demerah, and I am Inuk, raised in a small town called Kugluktuk, Nunavut. I am currently a student at the University of Calgary. I just finished my first year in a program called the Indigenous Student Access Program. This program was intended to prepare Indigenous students for university while still focusing on our Indigenous culture. In the fall I will return to the university to pursue my Bachelor of Education with an elementary focus. Having teachers come and go throughout my entire education is what caused my prolonged interest in becoming a teacher. Teachers play an important role, and I want to be able to have that impact on youth in Nunavut. Sports was always my passion, so I want to turn that passion into coaching my own sports team. Having sports in such a small community helped me find an escape and find my passion. Sports gave me a reason to do good. My goals for the future are to finish school, return to Nunavut to pursue teaching and coaching.
