Surviving through a pandemic is an experience Dhillon School of Business graduate, Siikimiikatopii, Cody Lyle Wells (BMgt '22) won't soon forget. The Indigenous governance and business management major is hoping his hard work and perseverance will serve him well with his intentions, "to play a leading or supporting role in building a prosperous economy on the Blood Tribe." Here he tells us more about his ULethbridge experience and what he plans to do with his education.

What is the most important lesson you learned during your time at ULethbridge?

Never give up, even when it seems impossible to succeed.

Is there someone specific who had an important influence on your ULethbridge experience?

The most important influencer on my ULethbridge experience was my family, especially my wife Shauna and my three girls, Meghan, Peyton and Sara. Without family support, I would have never made it.

Did you receive scholarships and awards? If so, tell us how they helped you throughout your studies.

I only applied for scholarships once, and I did receive the Shell Indigenous Award. It helped me with my textbooks for the semester.

What are your hopes and plans for the future?

My hopes and plans for the future are to play a leading or supporting role in building a prosperous economy for the Blood Tribe and in providing opportunities for all our people to succeed, young and old.

What advice would you like to give those who are about to begin their journey at ULethbridge?

Time management is so important. Stick with the priorities that got you here, and never be afraid to ask for help.

Congratulations Cody!
