Author: Shayla Sayer Brabant

Shayla Sayer-Brabant was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan but hails from Poundmaker Cree Nation. Ever since she was young, she’s had a knack for reading, writing, and telling tall tales of princesses who lived in magical bubbles. This trait combined with her love for helping others has led her down the path of journalism, which she is studying at the First Nations University of Canada. She is unsure where this path may lead, but is excited nonetheless. Whether it leads to a career in broadcasting, fashion journalism, or science journalism, Shayla just aims to make her parents and deceased grandmother proud. Shayla spends a great deal of time volunteering, spending her days outside, drinking too much Starbucks, and playing videogames. She is interested in learning more about her culture, her ancestors, and spirituality. Shayla draws her strength from her family and close friends, who encourage Shayla to continue breaking stereotypes as a young, First Nations woman. Shayla wishes to travel to the far corners of the world, touching the lives of many people. Shayla’s life goal is to help change the world for the generations to come, by spreading love and hope.
