Meet Natalia

Natalia Nybida – our 2021 summer host

Meet Natalia, our Summer Host for 2021!


I was born and raised on Cortes Island. As a child, I spent much of my time in the forest exploring old homesteads and writing stories about the lives of the people who once occupied those spaces. Because of this, the island’s history has always been close to my heart. I feel honoured for the opportunity to share that history with others.

Writing has been my passion and talent for as long as I can remember. In September I enter my third year at Vancouver Island University where I’m majoring in Creative Writing.



Welcome Natalia!
