Every month IIKELC is highlighting inspiring and uplifting stories from Nunavummiut across the territory. This month we are proud to celebrate Brittany Holm! Please enjoy her story below…

“My name is Brittany Holm, I am the Mental Health Outreach and Addictions worker here in Naujaat. I have been working in this position for five years now. I have a 15-month-old daughter Aurora-Wynter with my Fiancé Aaron who I met in Naujaat.  The best part about working in the community is getting to see the smiles on people’s faces during community visits & events. During the stressful and difficult moments of life, I like to tell myself that “This too shall pass”. The hard moments don’t last forever even though at times it may feel that way. I believe it’s important to take a few minutes every day to do something for yourself such as going for a short walk to decompress, a hot shower, or reading a chapter of a good book. Time for yourself is vital to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself and with others.”

– Brittany Holm, Naujaat
