Amber Bear

Uninter Student Global Ambassadors 2022

Amber’s most important job in this world is being a mother. She has an 11-year-old son and a 5-year-old mutt who have kept her on her toes during the last 5 years of creating crafts and selling them in a local gallery. Amber is of Woodlands Cree and settler descent. In her picture, Amber is wearing a pair of earrings she made. She loves the arts. After being laid off from a job of 10 years in the mining industry, she decided to go back to school to pursue her interests in business. She has always been interested in operations and in helping people in business. Amber is in her 4th year of Business Administration and her 1st year of Indigenous Journalism and Communications Arts at First Nations University in Canada. Studying at FNU has helped her find her way back home. She is originally from Stanley Mission, Saskatchewan. Although she does not currently speak her Native tongue, she is making efforts to learn it again. Her goals include completing her BBA and INCA certificate in 2022. She wants to explore the storytelling aspects of the communication arts programs and use her skills for projects in her home community. She is currently studying remotely from her home in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
