Christine LaVallee

Indigenous Studies Diploma/ADARTS

Tansi (Cree greeting), I have lived on the traditional lands of the Coast Salish people for the entirety of my life, and in 2007, I came to be in the territories of the Lkwungen and WSANEC peoples. The Community Learning Partnership between the Victoria Native Friendship Centre and Camosun College hosted my own stream of learning that eventually lead me to the achievements of the Provincial Dogwood, the Indigenous Studies Diploma, as well as an Associate Degree of Arts in English.

Through it all, and in the office of Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen – The Centre for Indigenous Education & Community Connections (IECC), I experienced the high standard of student support that is synonymous with Camosun College. The smiles, encouragement, and friendliness carried a world of meaning, and I basked in the welcoming surroundings of the office and campus life. I now aspire to that very same standard of student support; that, that has been modelled in my own learning journey. There is a tremendous satisfaction that accompanies my work as the IECC Front Reception, giving back what was so generously given; welcoming the students, the ‘old ones’, and the communities who share in the passion of education; as well as being that very small part to the unlimited student potential and transformation that takes place in lives of the students that we serve.
