St. Ignatius of Loyola Student Presents Portrait to Susan Aglukark
On June 13, 2017, St. Ignatius of Loyola student Tina Hoang presented her portrait of Susan Aglukark to the famous singer/songwriter.
Congratulations to St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School​ student, Tina Hoang, whose portrait of Susan Aglukark was presented to the famous singer/songwriter on June 13, 2017, at ​An Evening with Susan Aglukark: Truth and Reconciliation from an Inuit Perspective, at the Oakville YMCA.

Tina began the two by four feet painting in her final year at St. Ignatius of Loyola, and finished over the summer.

Through her speaking and singing presentation, Nomad, Juno award-winning artist Susan Aglukark took audiences on a journey of the last 1000 years of Canadian Indigenous history, sharing the strength and resiliency of Indigenous peoples living through adversity and change. Ms. Aglukark was the keynote speaker at the event, and met with Tina to accept the remarkable portrait.

In 2015, Tina's exceptional artistic abilities led her to win Best Original Poster for the Give Respect, Get Respect campaign, creating a deeply insightful poster for the Halton Catholic District School Board's Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week. In 2016, Tina was presented with a certificate of recognition for the donation of her St. Kateri Tekakwitha painting, which was included as part of a series of banners titled, Truth and Reconciliation​. We wish Tina all the best as she continues to flourish in her artistic abilities and academic studies!
