Celebration Week at the University of Manitoba brought in Rubin “Hurricane” Carter a former boxer, writer, human rights activist, Doctor of laws, CEO & Founder of Innocence International.
It was awesome to see him in person. He was a powerful positive force on stage.

As the University of Manitoba Student Union Aboriginal Students Representative I had the opportunity to thank him and gift him with tobacco and a dream catcher. 

We spoke after his talk and he took the time to place his hand on the banner. That was incredible!

I feel blessed to have had that experience.
