Cristi Adams – Project Manager at Transcanada, Aboriginal Advocate, Proud Mom and Mentor
It was noon at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office in Calgary and TransCanada employee, Cristi Adams, looked at ease sitting in a director’s chair behind bright lights and a camera. She was preparing to be interviewed about her experience as a mentee and mentor for TransCanada’s very own Mentoring Moments commercial – one in a series of commercials that aims to deliver a compelling call-to-action for Albertans to mentor youth in their communities.
“It was an honour to be chosen to participate in this awareness campaign created by Alberta Mentoring Partnership (representing Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations in Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer) and the Government of Alberta, said Adams, project manager at TransCanada. “I owe most of my success as a working professional, a mentor and a mother, to my own mentor from high school who gave me the support I needed and I am glad I can help encourage others to do the same.”
