Nkikaxni Grismer-Voght - Lacrosse to Leadership

Nkikaxni Grismer-Voght is a leader on the rise. A Storm Lacrosse member, we caught up with Xni at the BC Assembly of First Nations Meeting on March 7, 2019. Xni (Honey) was there preparing to participate in the meeting as one of two Student Representatives on the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology Board of Governors. Xni is a student at NVIT and is a lacrosse player.

Xni has been busy studying and was excited to share that she was selected to participate in Daughters of the Vote program organized by Equal Voice.

The Program had over 1000 applicants. Xni will be part of the delegation that will travel to Ottawa from March 31st to April 5, 2019 representing the federal riding of Okanagan-Similkameen -Nicola. We look forward to seeing Xni sitting in the house of commons, sitting in Senate, testifying at a committee and participating in panels, workshops and training sessions.

As an Indigenous Female Lacrosse Athlete, Xni has also taken part in Coaching Clinic and as you can see, will also be making her mark at a National Level. We are proud of our athletes who are also future leaders. When you know your culture, nothing can stop you in reaching your goals.
