1. Awesome was the opportunity to network with a room full of people who have both very similar and very different professional experiences as me – people with whom, given the geographical isolation of each of our villages in Nunavik, I’ve had little, to no contact until now.
2. Awesome was not only making it through a full day of meetings after an exhaustingly long day of travel the day before, a late arrival into the city, and a night with little sleep, but doing so as an engaged participant.
3. Awesome was all-you-can-eat sushi – a delicious and adventurous dinner at a good price – with a friend.
