A family affair

It’s a family affair for Transition Year Program student, Carrie Lee.

Ms. Lee is the third member of her family to complete the program at Dal. She follows in the footsteps of her mother and her sister, who is completing her degree in social work.

Ms. Lee found the program very informative and has enjoyed learning about the true history of her culture through the Native Studies program and the history of Indigenous Black Nova Scotians through the black studies course.

“The program has shifted my thinking,” she says. “I’m exploring new perspectives and the professors and staff are extremely supportive.”

In addition, she discovered a passion for writing through her English class and tutorial — a passion she will further explore through her advanced studies. Ms. Lee will be returning in the fall, enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program with a future career goal of working for the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network. When not focused on her studies, Ms. Lee volunteers with the Dalhousie Native Students Association and serves as a member at large on the Transition Year Pro-gram student association.
