Overcoming Trauma to Pursue Environmental Advocacy, British Columbia

Patrick Stubbington's journey from a traumatic childhood to university success is a testament to resilience. A Sixties Scoop survivor from Saik'uz First Nation, Patrick endured severe abuse before finding solace in academics. Despite learning disabilities, he pursued an Environmental Planning degree, with the help of a Future Generations Foundation scholarship at the University of Northern British Columbia.

Patrick’s advocacy extends beyond academics; he actively engages in mental health discussions, facilitating panels at UNBC. As an Indigenous Ambassador, he fosters dialogue on critical issues. Patrick's dedication also extends to his community, advocating for sustainable projects for future generations. Through perseverance and community engagement, Patrick embodies hope and empowerment.
