Myia Antone was born and raised in Squamish, B.C. as a proud Sḵwx̱wú7mesh member. In her words, she was created by the mountains, valleys, ocean and wind that countless generations of her ancestors have occupied. She is currently studying environment and sustainability at the University of British Columbia. After school, she plans on giving back to her community and the people who have helped get her to where she is today. She loves swimming in the ocean and adventuring in new towns and cities, but mostly she loves coming home. As a youth leader, she firmly believes that as we enjoy the present moment, we are in charge of the future.
