This is what students have to say about Soaring!

“The best part of the Soaring event was the Spotlight Sessions and each of the panels, on both days. These panels were very informative, and I was able to take away a lot of important information in regards to achieving my goals as a person, connecting culturally, and getting some great advice through these panels.”

“My favourite part of Soaring was being able to listen to the stories and advice of those on the panels. Being able to learn the stories and struggles of others and how they got through them is incredible and really helped me reflect on myself.”

“The best part of the Soaring event is that they help indigenous people who don’t know what they want to do when they are done high school.”
