Name: Suzan Kostiuck

Occupation: custom framer, gallery rep and artist

Age: 35

Hometown: Dawson Creek

If you get a chance go see: anything with Jackie Chan

Right now I am reading: A Breath of Hope and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon

I’m listening to: Hannah Morten’s Hope CD. Her voice is timeless

At least once everyone should: swing off the rope spring at Bright Angel Park

Most people don’t know I: have year-long cravings for fresh Saskatoon berries

Proudest or happiest moment: seeing my husband with a big grin holding our children for the first time

Biggest fear: to do or say something in front of an elder that is disrespectful

If I was appointed queen of the valley I would: make the valley zero waste and have our food island-grown

Before I die: I want to learn to speak my native language, South Slavey, fluently

Words I live by: Those who hear not the music think the dancers mad
