Meet our Student Ambassadors. Just like you, they came to Lethbridge College to join our community and prepare for the career of their dreams. Our student ambassadors are also here for you. Reach out to the recruitment services team to connect with an ambassador.


Chiane Shade

Oki, I was born in Cardston, AB., and raised on the Blood Reserve (Kainaiwa). I attended school in Cardston and graduated high school in 2004. I am a mother to three beautiful little Blackfoot children and a lovely wife to my husband Buddy.  I am currently a Child and Youth Care student, and I love every minute of my program as I have learned so much. My Blackfoot culture is very important to me as I practice and learn daily. When I finish school, my biggest goal is to incorporate my culture and traditions into my career in helping my people heal.


Adrienne Crow Shoe

Oki, my name is Adrienne Crow Shoe and I’m from the Piikani Nation.

I attended school in Pincher Creek and graduated in 2012. I worked for a few years until I went back to school in 2015 for my Health Care Aide certificate, where I worked specifically with dementia residents. I decided to go back to school during the pandemic, taking Business Administration working towards my diplomas in accounting and management. The past two summers I worked on my reserve with entrepreneurs which helped me gain more information, as well as allow me to put my education to use assisting others with their businesses.

I am a returning Student Ambassador, which I am so grateful for. This opportunity has allowed me to overcome personal obstacles (social anxiety) and gain experience in new things I would have never expected. It has also allowed me to be more knowledgeable and comfortable with my college experience.

I enjoy keeping busy, balancing school, work, and a personal life. When I do have free time, I enjoy hiking, swimming, sewing and spending time with family and friends.


Josh Hickman

Howzit everyone! I grew up in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and immigrated to Canada in 2014, where I graduated from high school before marrying the love of my life.

I am currently working towards completing my Diploma in Computer Information Technology, which has afforded me countless opportunities to learn an immense amount about both myself and the IT industry.

Outside of school I enjoy hiking and fishing as well as cooking and catching up with old friends and family. I love learning new things from interesting people so feel free to stop me for a chat about school, life, or whatever’s on your mind!


Desiree Metiam

Hello everyone! My name is Desiree Metiam, and I am a proud Filipino. I worked as an accountant for six years, ran a small business designing digital products, and took the risk of studying in Canada as an international student. I am currently enrolled in a Business Administration program with a major in Management, and I am absolutely loving this course.

I make sure that my Lethbridge College experience is worthwhile after nearly two years of study. During the 2021 tax season, I was one of the volunteers in the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. I'm also the Vice President of the Business Club (hello, Business Students!). As an ambassador, I always advocate for making the most of being a student while achieving academic excellence. Have a lot of fun!

If you want to learn more about my academic and professional journey, I am happy to share my experiences. I can't wait to meet you all, and I hope you're as excited as I am!


Marcela Leija Montoya

Hello!, My name is Marcela Leija; I was born and raised in Mexico. I have always loved nature and outdoor activities, and because of this, I studied biology and worked as a high school science teacher for five years. There, I realized teaching is another of my passions. I started my journey in Canada as an international student enrolled in Natural Resource Compliance Program, and I have learned and enjoyed myself a lot. If you intend to come to Canada to study, it would be a pleasure to share my experience with you.


Kristhy Perez Corona

Hi friend! I was born and grew up in a beautiful country located in the Caribbean, and my primary language is Spanish. I graduated high school in 2014 and pursued a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Psychology. After graduating with my BA, I had the opportunity to work as a School Counselor and realized that early childhood is my passion, therefore, I decided to come to Canada as an International Student and obtain an ECE certificate (I’m loving it).

Lethbridge College offers amazing growth opportunities to students, and I’m proof of that. What I love the most about Lethbridge College is that the staffs and instructors are super welcoming, understanding, and helpful.

If you’re currently outside of Canada, or unsure about coming to Lethbridge College, feel free to reach out; I would love to share more details of my experience with you.

Welcome to Lethbridge College.
