My name is Sharon Desnomie; I am from Sto:lo territory and I have grown up surrounded by our culture and traditions that I hold onto very dearly. I was recently hired as Sq’ewá:lxw First Nation’s Events Assistant and will be working part-time with Mike. I am excited for the learning opportunity and to meet new people and members of Sq’ewá:lxw.
My plan for after summer is to continue my education through the University of the Fraser Valley and continue working on my goal of becoming a substance abuse counselor. When not working or enrolled in school I am very involved in my families mixed martial arts gym as fitness plays a big part in all aspects of my life, from running to war canoe racing to kickboxing.
Strong mind, strong body, strong spirit.
