Scott Collegiate

My name is Shanaiah Creedance Geddes. I was born in Regina, Saskatchewan on June 17, 2002 and adopted soon after birth. I’m working hard to achieve my goals I’ve dreamed of since I was six years old, which was to be a city police officer. I’ve moved around a lot but have lived here in Regina for four years.

I enjoy doing sketches and acrylic painting, but love playing and learning guitar. I absolutely take delight in many sports and Jiu Jitsu but most of all, I adore being around the people I love.

The biggest challenge I’m facing in my life is feeling emotionally well as I’ve been diagnosed with C-PTSD at a young age. I keep pushing and pushing even though it feels like a cement wall, but I think about my teachers, my friends and my family and it drives me to be the person I am today. I will never stop for myself or for others because that’s just who I am as a young Indigenous woman.
