"From the Streets to the Stars"

Jorgina Sunn has won the hearts of many through her authentic story of rising from the bottom and finding light in the darkness. Having lived a hard life on the streets with drugs and gangs to becoming an Aboriginal Order of Canada recipient and a Canada's Everyday Political Citizen Award runner up, Jorgina Sunn knows this road less travelled.

Recognized by peers and community members as a determined, strong role model, Jorgina is a leader in what she does as a musician, work-shop facilitator, and public speaker. Originally from the Paul Band First Nation in Alberta, she lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan today.

Music is one of Jorgina’s greatest loves, and has become a big part of her journey to recovery and success. Playing in various events and musical festivals Jorgina began achieving some top prizes including Maple Creek Music Festival. In 2012, Jorgina was featured on a local television show and shortly after, recorded a demo CD that launched her into the music business. Since 2013, Jorgina has worked with multi-platinum artist, three-time Juno nominee, and producer Earl Pereira. They create music that conveys her struggle of pain to embracing joy and a path of healing. Jorgina has recently released her first single and video ‘Freedom’.

Jorgina willingly speaks about sensitive topics like abuse, human trafficking, shame and fear-based thinking as well as living in domestic violence. She openly shares about the experiences of having served time in prison and what life of an addiction can mean. Jorgina shares what it took to transform from “survival” to actual living as a healthy human being.

Today, you will find Jorgina sharing her music and journey of hope in schools and universities, local treatment centers for drug and alcohol dependencies, as well as faith-based groups and churches. She is an active community member, working with STR8UP, a non-profit organization which helps people reconsider the gang life and lead a healthier way of living through culture and storytelling.

“Keep reaching out for help. When you do, you find you had your own answers all along……Believe in Who You Are.”
