Jannica speaks of an Elder who is near to her heart, because of her teachings:
By Alexandra Jarrett & Devon Fiddler
“My Elder who lives on through the lives of those she influenced, Dr Mary Thomas, Secwepemc Nation always had valuable teachings to relay and she would follow them by saying 'this isn't just for you to know, this is for you to teach'. This is a quote that constantly echoes in my life and I hope to embody that mantra as I continue to learn and grow because it's not what we do or what awards we receive that make us it's our encounters along the way that shape who we become.”
