Tina Marie Lynn Nash
I am a member of Tahltan Nation, a mother of 11 children and grandmother of two. I am a firm believer in the power of education to liberate oneself from poverty, oppression and social and economic disparity. I also believe that we must be the change we wish to see in the world, so I try very hard to be a good role model for my children and community. My vision is to one day open a healing centre for Aboriginal women coming out of the prison system that has social, housing, economic, educational, spiritual, cultural and mental health support.
“I would like to thank the New Relationship Trust (NRT) and the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) for their recognition and support of Aboriginal post-secondary education. Without the support of NRT and their partnership with FNHA, I would not have been able to embark on the educational journey that I have over the last two years.”
