Youth Mentor - Kaylie

Posted: Aug 15, 2014

My name is Kaylie McLean. I am 15 years old going into grade 11. I am from the eagle/laxsgiik tribe. My home is New Aiyansh, B.C also known as Gitlaxt'aamiks.

My interests include basketball and soccer; I enjoy travelling and going to school as well.

Wellness to me is when I'm around my family or friends who encourage me to do things and give me that push whether it's in sports, school or in life. At times I look to a few bible verses like Philippians 4:13 and Jeremiah 29:11, which makes me feel good about myself and have a more positive outlook on things.

This week I got to be apart of the G.Y.M program. I've had the chance to meet some new people who give you that encouragement and keep you going throughout the day. I feel that this program was important to our community because we got kids out here who don't do much to keep themselves active on a daily basis.  As young leaders, we provided that encouragement for the youth to keep going and have fun.

All I have to say is push yourself to achieve the goals or dreams you have.
