Alana Cook is a proud Métis woman, born and raised in the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia. She graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts, and was then accepted into the Aboriginal Youth Internship Program for a position with the Ministry of Community, Sports, and Cultural Development. She is currently working towards a Masters of Education with the Indigenous Land-based cohort through the University of Saskatchewan.
A FitNation Leader and Métis Youth Role Model, Alana’s experience lies in working with youth to achieve excellence in sports. Her professional goal is to work within an organization that supports sports, wellness, and a dedication to Aboriginal culture, and she believes she has found her dream job with ISPARC.
An avid athlete from an early age, Alana competed in soccer, rugby, volleyball, badminton, cross-country, and any other sport she could get her hands on. At the age of nineteen, she discovered Mixed Martial Arts, and this has been her passion ever since. Her sports credentials include medals in MMA, boxing, grappling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, pankration, and wrestling. Alana also loves travelling, corgis, and spending time in the outdoors.
