Featured Member: Amy Dakue

Full Name: Amy Dakue

Alternate and way-more-accurate name: Ms. Voracious Vocabulary

These are a few of my favourite things:

  • Literature and reading
  • Sleep (If she never had to, she stated she “would develop a fixed obsession with finding a way to sleep, as I quite enjoy it”)
  • Meaningful human connection

Representing Luther College, a federated college at the University of Regina, Amy Dakue brings a wealth of personality to our team, and has been travelling with SUTIL for two years. Anyone who works with Amy knows how easily she is able to light up a room with laugher, and among her many quirks and lovable qualities, states that the shining star just may be that she has “a somewhat remarkable whistle”.

This is not where the end of her interests lie, however, oh no! Despite having a general distain for a data-driven style of work, she is immensely captivated with literature that explores psychosociological constructs. Adrienne Rich’s essay, Compulsory Heterosexuality, Leslie Feinbergand’s, Stone Butch Blues, and Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam series deeply affected her, and encouraged her to think more deeply about herself and where her worldviews originated. Perhaps this love for literature was driven by the counter experience by math growing up in high school, as one high school teacher once told her, point blank, that she was too stupid for math. In true Amy spirit, however, as she so eloquently retorts now: “Well guess what, SHARON, not too long ago I did the math in my head to see if I had enough money for cinnamon buns + Doritos and still be under my daily cash allowance for food… A++”.

Take that Sharon. Cinnamon bun math for the WIN!

Testimonials

Even though I am over a half a Century old, I have been inspired by the group to go for higher education. I have applied to the University of Regina and I got accepted. I plan on taking classes there and there and I pray and hope I will be successful to obtain two more degrees before I reach age 55. I want to be a role model for the students, my family, and the community. Before retiring I will tackle Masters.

Happy Friday the 13th of December,

Thank you for The SUTIL Scoop and the SUTIL team visit at Rhoda Hardlotte Keethanow High School in Northern Saskatchewan. I noticed some of the team members were into Volleyball during the noon hour. Maybe that is how the team works; to have fun and to laugh and to warm up before presenting to the students and staff. Great Team! Thank you once again, SUTIL Team.

Hi Linda and Cheryl,

Thank you on behalf of Nutana Collegiate for bringing your event to our students. I have been hearing nothing but positive feedback in the building since this morning. Being new in the career facilitator role in my building, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for having such a well-organized and easy (from the host school perspective) event to offer to my students. All of the hard work that you have put in is much appreciated. I look forward to future events.
