Rebecka Abotossaway

Rebecka is a proud Indigenous female who is a member of Aundeck Omni Kaning, First Nation, a very small reserve located in Northern Ontario. She is a recent graduate of the Social Service Worker (AEI) Aboriginal Emphasis Initiative Program, Honours from Sir Sandford Fleming College. She has lived away from home for eight years. She knew there was more to life, than the small boundaries of her own community, so she took the initiative to move away. Rebecka wanted to explore life, and the vast opportunities life had to offer. Most importantly, so she can get an education, and break the barriers, that Indigenous youth face in today’s society. Rebecka started working with the development team at Indspire, in May 2015. Her previous work experience has allowed her to work closely with Indigenous youth, children, adults and elders. As a recent graduate, she would love to gain as much experience as she can in the not-for-profit sector, and she feels that this program would be a perfect added opportunity on achieving her future educational goals.
