Hi my name is Siobhan Bligh and i have lived in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut for 14 years. i got the inspiration when someone in the community died of a stroke and one of the elders of the town told me she has seen more stroke in the arctic then heart attacks. I plan to investigate this further by finding statisics and by personal experience. My adive to other students is not to wait for the last day to finish, finish early and you will feel alot better.
