Through the help of others
As a 12 year old girl growing up as one of the "poor native kids" on an island in Lake Huron, I never would have dreamt that I would have the privilege to serve my community in any capacity, let alone as mayor. It's not an opportunity I take for granted and it's not something I did on my own. It's through the enormous amount of help from others that I received throughout this journey. Please know how much your support means to me—your belief in me as a leader, as a person who is driven by doing good and helping others, and as a living example to my children that the chains of poverty can be broken and we can rise up no matter the challenges that come our way when we are young. We shall Goforth!
