Meet the Makers is a series of interviews to help you get to know the people who are building our community. Josephine is our new Events Coordinator.

 Why did you join Yukonstruct?

My desire to join Yukonstruct was as a result of Yukonstructs’ vision to empower Yukoners to bring their ideas to life in a creative and innovative way. Giving back and community development is a significant part of my personal values and career. I was excited that an organization values the community as much as I do. It was an opportunity for me to contribute to an exciting, fast-moving organization.

What do you like most about Yukonstruct (Cospace /Makespace / Launchspace) being up and running?

I love the fact that creativity innovation and ideas all meet at one place. Yukonstruct to me, is like the thumb you can’t make a knot without it. We don’t just provide you a space to work but also provide support for your business development when you need one!

Why should people become Yukonstruct members?

Even if you are not creative, being in the company of creative minds makes you one. You will not know how creative you are until you walk into our makespace. You will be amazed at the ideas that will run through your mind.

What do you like to make?

I love to bake bread and pie. I am not a pro yet but something good enough to make you ask for more. 

What do you want to build at Yukonstruct?

I want to make a matching shirt for my husband and son.

What inspires you?

Learning new things. The more makers I meet, the more I want to build something and the more confident I get looking at the resources (both human and equipment) available.

What do you like the most in the space? Why?

The entire community that comes with the space. It’s a great feeling knowing that when I need support in making/building something and I get stuck as a beginner,  there will always be someone to give me a hand.
