Tansí! My name is Alex Ledoux. I’m a Cree woman from Muskeg Lake Cree Nation. I’m a third year University student pursuing my Bachelor of Education degree at the University of Regina. My hobbies include spending time with my daughter and family, playing sports, engaging in new experiences, pursuing opportunities to learn new knowledge, traveling the world, and enjoying the outdoors.
I grew up on reserve. I spent most of my childhood playing outdoors, attending culture camps and participating in various sports representing my community and Saskatoon Tribal Council during First Nations Winter and Summer Games. During high school I had the opportunity of creating summer programs for children while working as a summer student for Muskeg Lake. After I graduated from high school I took this opportunity to gain work experience and travel for a few years. During this time I was privileged to travel to the west coast of Canada, Europe and the United States while working as an Educational Assistant for my other home community of Peepeekisis First Nation. I was given the opportunity to coach badminton for Peepeekisis Pesakestew high school and for the File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council. My experiences working as a coach and a educator I discovered my passion for learning and teaching which resulted in my pursuit into becoming a Teacher.
My goals in life are to give back to my home communities of Muskeg Lake and Peepeekisis and to be able to live the rest of my life doing the things I love most, being a mother, teaching and coaching. Hiy hiy.
