Event Description

Estelle Hjertaas spent January to April living in and traveling through East Africa in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania, experiencing everything from farming to city life to safaris! Most of her time was spent on three farms, in Luo and Masai villages respectively in Kenya working on permaculture projects, and one farm that provides food for the poorest hospital patients in Butare, Rwanda. This presentation will provide an overview of her life in each of these places, some travel tips and stories, plus lots of animal photos! Estelle is a fluently bilingual criminal defence lawyer with Legal Aid in Prince Albert. She represents youth in Prince Albert, travels to indigenous communities, and has significant experience with clients in federal and provincial jails. She studied common and civil law in English and French at University of Ottawa, receiving a J.D. (Hons) and LL.L.(Hons). She obtained a B.A (Jt. Hons) in history and political science with a focus on Canada from McGill University. As a way to gain a better understanding of other cultures and places, Estelle has traveled to every province in Canada and several countries, as well as volunteered in the Yukon, Ecuador, Kenya and Rwanda. In Prince Albert, Estelle founded and led three groups (Prince Albert Salsa, Prince Albert Young Professionals, and the Prince Albert Federal Liberal Association), is a board member, frequent volunteer and participant in community activities, a Big Sister and served as a foster parent. Estelle is a member of the Law Society of Saskatchewan, and an executive member of the Prince Albert Bar Association. In her spare time, she enjoys outdoor activities including hiking, canoeing, camping, hunting and cross-country skiing. She also has a black belt in judo, practiced muay thai and is passionate about Latin dance.
