Justin is a Metis Youth Advocate from Swan River, MB who is currently running for a Vice President position in the University of Manitoba’s student union. He is passionate about mental health, especially for those who have lived in rural areas, and students who find University to be isolating and difficult on their mental health.
Justin also does volunteer work with the Manitoba Metis Federation to help engage and inspire Metis Youth across the province with programs and initiatives that are often missing from rural communities. He has donated $5,500 to Swan River charities, and was recognized as a National Champion of Mental Health for youth, and one of the top 25 environmentalists under 25 nationally.
Well deserved accolades for a true Community Hero!
