Native Education College is a safe place for me to return to school. I am grateful for Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-waututh and NEC for creating a safer space for Indigenous Diaspora like myself. As an Intergenerational residential school survivor I feel relieved to be able to build a better life for myself and everyone I connect with, supported by the inclusive Indigenous space provided by NEC.
