What We Heard from Students:
"I enjoyed the experience and opportunity to work with students and professors internationally. During these unprecedented times, students (myself included) started feeling fatigue over the redundancy of online schooling. Having a new experience and seeing/meeting new people was a nice change."
“I think making connections with other Indigenous people across the globe is important. It really allowed me to explore my own experiences as an Indigenous person and my Indigeneity and to see the similarities and differences in our experiences. As a Mi'kmaw/Inuk student I found this experience incredibly valuable.”
"An amazing upside to corona as we may not have had this virtual opportunity.”
