Prior to attending “BY DESIGN” I was getting my needs met through manipulation and it never satisfied my soul.  I manipulated my husband and circumstances and had convinced myself that I was the victim. I became satisfied with just living life and getting by.  I was ashamed of who I was. I struggled with fear and I lacked self-confidence.

After By Design I got over myself. I stopped playing victim and thinking every situation was about me. I started honouring others. I began dreaming again, huge dreams that not only have to do with me but my Nation and I do know they will come to pass! I am now proud to say that I am a First Nation woman who has a voice and a story to share. I am equal. I have conquered fear in my life and have built confidence like never before! Since attending By Design, I was asked to be the MAIN speaker at a retreat for women, I have travelled to Samoa on missions and have joined the By Design team!  I have never felt so alive!
