NAN CONGRATULATES CHAPLEAU CREE FIRST NATION’S EMMA MORRISON, CROWNED MISS TEENAGE CANADA

THUNDER BAY, ON (August 14, 2017): Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Deputy Grand Chief Anna Betty Achneepineskum, on behalf of the Executive Council, congratulates 17-year-old Chapleau Cree First Nation member Emma Morrison, who was crowned Miss Teenage Canada over the weekend:

“We congratulate this remarkable young woman for her accomplishments, and her family and community for encouraging and supporting her at every step along the way. It is encouraging to see youth like Emma achieve goals that they and their communities can be proud of. We strongly support and encourage all NAN youth to pursue their dreams and achieve their full potential. In addition to a career in nursing, Emma’s goal in life is to help others shine; to have the confidence to be themselves and show who they are. Earning this national title is an excellent example for other young people: that great things can happen when you aim high and work hard.”

Morrison earned the Miss Northern Ontario title in May 2017. She used her winnings from that event to enter the national competition in Toronto, where she competed against 50 contestants from across Canada. An online voting process helped select the top 20 finalists for Sunday evening’s competition.
