Haskayne aboriginal students named scholars in Ch’nook Business Program – U of C

by ahnationtalk on November 24, 2015174 Views

A couple of aboriginal students at Haskayne School of Business are discovering more options and meeting plenty of peers after being chosen as scholars in the Ch’nook Aboriginal Business Program, an initiative helping to create sustainable and self-sufficient economies in aboriginal communities.

“I often felt like I was the only one,” says Cheyenne Danelle McGinnis, a final-year accounting and communications student at Haskayne. “Getting to know other people and building my own network will definitely help me in my career to call up people I know who have maybe done similar things.”

McGinnis, who has been chosen as a Ch’nook scholar three years in a row, wants to develop programs that can be “shared around” to help women and children in different First Nations communities.

“I want to do a lot of different things,” she says. “The program has helped me to see where I can meet other people who have the strengths that I don’t have, to build something that could really help different communities.”
