Nikki was recognized and acknowledged as one of the CBC’S ‘Young Indigenous Women on the Rise, as well the 30 under 30 list for GreenBiz.
she is a tireless advocate for Indigenous women and girls in Canada and worldwide.
Fraser's own advice to other Indigenous women and girls: "Go after your dream. Find something that you're passionate about. Never be afraid. Don't take the word 'no' or rejection personally. Use that as a fuel-driver."
Leave for home inspired by our end-of-day Keynote with Nikki Fraser, a 28 year-old Indigenous advocate and a proud mom of two from Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc within the Secwépemc Nation in interior British Columbia, that has used her platform to advocate for young Indigenous Women and Girls by participating in meetings, conferences, and gatherings in communities across Canada, United States of America and Central America.
It takes just "a little belief in yourself," said Fraser, who also wants to be sure to pass on Secwepemc and Native values to her children.
