Charla Sylvester, a photography student from Beausoleil First Nation in Ontario, is working to bring awareness to missing and murdered Indidenous women through her photography skills. She is studying photography at Georgian College in Barrie and has already made an impact with one of her photo assignments, which was to focus on visual cues and inform people of an issue through her image. For the assignment, her cousin posed for her, wrapped in a Canadian flag with her mouth taped to represent missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada.
