We’re bringing you our second Fireside Chat! In partnership with Humber Indigenous Education & Engagement, we’re excited to virtually welcome Cree First Nations model, activist, motivational speaker and the esteemed 2015 Mrs. Universe, Ashley Callingbull.
Callingbull works with major brands, recently joining Nike on their N7 Campaign. This campaign not only celebrates Indigenous culture, but also aims to help Native American and Indigenous communities. Over the years, the N7 Fund has awarded millions of dollars in grants to various organizations and communities that share their goal of providing Indigenous youth with the opportunity to lead a healthy life through engaging in physical activity.
Callingbull has publicly voiced her opinion on the importance of Indigenous representation and continues to seek out work that celebrates and acknowledges her heritage, such as the work she has done on APTN’s Blackstone and CBC’s 8th Fire.
Learn how else Callingbull’s Native Cree heritage has impacted her work and hear what career advice she has for you through her interview with freelance Indigenous journalist and Humber alum, Kelly Boutsalis.
