2015 SCNC, 2015 PSCC, 2015 Qualifying Competition

At the 2015 Skills Canada National Competition in Saskatoon, SK, Natalee became the first Alberta competitor to take home gold in photography. Natalee’s journey to national gold started in March 2015, when she submitted a photo for the Photography Qualifying Competition. Placing in the top 18, Natalee won her spot to the 2015 Provincial Skills Canada Competition.  She took home the Provincial gold medal, and earned her spot representing Team Alberta.

Natalee says that one of the best parts of being on Team Alberta was “all the incredible friends I made! We bonded quickly…and got to share our victories together at the end!”

Natalee’s event was one of the first to be announced at the Awards Ceremony in Saskatoon, and Team Alberta cheered boisterously for their fellow team mate. Natalee says that “It was amazing to have the support of a whole province behind me when I won gold!”

Natalee is currently continuing with her passion in Photography at NAIT, and is also one of the Alumni Stars of our 2016 Skills Canada Competitions campaign.
