HyunguHyungu Kang

안녕하세요~~, Hello! My name is Hyungu Kang (강현구) and I am a first generation settler from Seoul, South Korea. Back in 1998, my family and I arrived to Halifax, Nova Scotia –  unceded Mi’kmaq territory – and I have recently re-settled onto Amiskwaciy Waskahikan Treaty Six territory, in the city of Edmonton. I am currently in training as a public health epidemiologist with an interest in social and cultural mental health servicing and I am incredibly honoured to be a part of this CRE community. The work with CRE encourages me to become a more conscious community member by understanding my own identity as a settler on Turtle Island, but even more, it challenges me to continue this journey of unlearning and undoing. Through CRE, we have this opportunity to gather in solidarity around the impacts of colonialism on our stories and to also engage with these stories in reconciliation. So I am both humbled and excited to continue this journey through CRE and our wider communities! 감사합니다~~ Thank you very much.
