2016 Rose Nolan Scholarship winner Lindsay Bristow is a member of Bloodvein First Nation, in Manitoba. She is entering her third year in the Bachelor of Arts in Honours Psychology at the University of Manitoba but has been completing prerequisites for veterinary college.
Lindsay’s goal is to be a veterinarian and she chose a major in Psychology so she could better navigate the sensitive issues that may arise when working with pet owners. Lindsay has always felt very strongly about the power of education and has a great love of learning; however, Lindsay was not always a great student and in junior high left school but she knows firsthand how education has changed her life and she knows that education may do the same for others.
Recently, she was asked to be the keynote speaker at the grade 9 graduations in Bloodvein First Nation -a community that can only be accessed by plane only.
She is a member of the University of Manitoba’s Pre-Vet Club and volunteers weekly at South Glen Veterinary Hospital.
