Byanca Nimijean

Byanca, also known as Bee, is a fourth-year Bachelor of Social Work student at the University of Calgary. A hard, scary and seemingly impossible journey took her through the highly involved processes of the justice system. She fought with everything she had, and  learned about the power she had within her. In order to survive, Byanca had to take back her voice. This remarkable experience sparked a passion for social justice and led her to act as an advocate for others. Believing each of our voices is loud, fierce and empowering, Byanca will share what speaking up can take, and, more importantly, what it can give back.
