Andrea Andersen is currently a Physiotherapist in Iqaluit for Nunavut’s Qikiqtani Region. Originally from Nunatsiavut, she is an Inuk who has spent a great deal of her time growing up on the land. Andrea enjoys exploring other parts of Canada, especially other regions of Inuit Nunangat.
Andrea is involved with the Iqaluit Food centre, the 4Rs Youth Movement, and just recently aged out of her role as the Youth Executive for the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC). She has advocated for Search and Rescue to be stationed in Labrador, for Indigenous consultation for the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project, and for the revitalization of the Labrador Inuktitut dialect.
Andrea is very honoured to be participating in Leg 11!
