Valeen Jules is a former foster kid, former homeless youth, and first-year college dropout from the Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwaka’wakw nations. Valeen is also a radio producer, youth outreach worker, spoken word artist, community organizer, workshop facilitator, filmmaker and doula with a passion for nation building and QTBIPOC liberation. Valeen has a lot of titles that don’t pay enough, but her favourite jobs are being an aunty and being the greatest bad influence to her friends. Causing trouble and being an example of radical self-care each day is just another step towards her sovereignty for her nations and for her communities. Valeen enjoys playing basketball and pressuring her friends to be their amazing revolutionary selves.
