Diane Obed, Graduate from Dalhousie University

A Nunatsiavut beneficiary who recently graduated from Dalhousie University plans to use knowledge that she gained to help communities in Labrador.

Diane Obed, a former resident of Goose Bay, is originally from Hopedale.

She says she entered the Maritimes School of Social Work with the intention of helping aboriginal communities.

In one of her cultural classes, she was asked to do a presentation about her culture.

To provide visualization, she wore a silipak that her mother made and showed a video clip of throat singing.

She says the audience appeared amazed by the demonstration.

Obed says she got to where she is today through discipline and tolerance.

She believes this is part of the Inuit culture and ways.
