How To Be a Yellowknifer: Kam Hogan

Kam Hogan is a Yellowknife Ambassador through and through but was also once one of those Yellowknifers who thought they’d only be here for a year. 6 years late she is still here.

Getting her first glimpse of the Northwest Territories at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics in the form of the Northern House, Kam, thought moving to Yellowknife would be a great adventure but had no idea what to expect.

In this episode, she shares a great story of driving to Yellowknife and stopping in Behchoko thinking it might be Yellowknife.

Today, Kam is just thriving in Yellowknife. Working during the day, personal training by night and then volunteering and embracing her community all throughout.

The biggest takeaway Kam talked about in this episode of the How To Be a Yellowknifer was to just “say yes” when you first move to Yellowknife. Introvert or extrovert, saying yes will help you establish your Yellowknife Rythm and you’ll quickly find what makes Yellowknife great for you.

Kam talks about so much more than this, so settle in and enjoy this episode fo the How To Be a Yellowknife Podcast.
