"Trunkfish" by Jade, 19 | Dry Tortugas National Park 2018
My name is Jade. I am 19 and have been a resident at Northwest Passage three times. I graduated high school last year and will be working towards a Communications Major at Lake Superior College in Duluth, Minnesota.
Northwest Passage has become a significant chapter of my life. Through the people working with me and the residents I’ve met, I’ve learned that family is not only limited to blood relations. When you hit the lowest points in your life, family becomes the people who believe in you no matter how horrible the days feel. They still see the good in you, even when you feel that everything good and true about your character is lost. Northwest Passage has placed a forever home in my heart.
