Heyo! My name is Breagh Bridge, and I am originally from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I now live in West Kelowna, BC, on the traditional unceded territory of the Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation. I live near Okanagan Lake, where I spend most of the summer down at the beach swimming with my parents, my sister, Allie, and our dog, Lucy.
I was selected for YAC in August 2021; with Fast and Female’s support, I have organized two pop-up events in Kelowna, BC, including one on cross-country skis! Right now, a big part of my life is planning for my post-secondary education, as I will graduate High School in June 2023. A big factor for me when choosing a university is that they have supportive academic and athletic programs and a positive team environment so that I may continue to be an athlete throughout university. I am applying to start an Exercise Science degree so that I can continue to learn about the human body and advocate for women’s sport from a deeper knowledge base. I plan to apply the skills I learn as I continue to work with organizations like Fast and Female. I like to find time for myself throughout my week to stretch/do yoga and hang out with friends because this helps me unwind, and my New Year's Resolution is to read more - not school related - books! On a bigger scale, my favourite way to recharge is by going camping and hiking with friends and family. I am looking forward to doing more of this next summer!
See you on the trails!
