Miss Teen Galaxy Cambridge
Marcie, 16, comes from a small Mi’kmaq First Nations community called Annapolis Valley reservation in Cambridge, Nova Scotia. She attends Central Kings Rural High School and is in grade 11. She loves education with a passion and encourages others to succeed with their learning also. In the past two years, Marcie has taken part in well over a dozen different cultural events, workshops and camps to further her knowledge of Mi’kmaq teachings.
A program that changed Marcie’s life forever was a six day camp called the Red Road Project. The program is for Mi’kmaq youth leaders to encourage cultural activities without the association of drugs and alcohol to other Mi’kmaq youth. Red Road opened Marcie’s eyes and made her grateful to be who she is, and eager to pass along teachings to the future generations of youth. Marcie’s goal after high school is to attend university, further her studies in sociology and cultural studies, and become a counselling therapist for remote First Nations communities that have little to no mental health aid.
