Youth Spotlight – Mitana Taylor (2023.03.01)

Mitana is the daughter of proud parents Jeff and Michelle. Mitana is 14 years old and a freshman at Vincent Massey High School in Brandon School Division. This is Mitana’s first year playing basketball and her family couldn’t be prouder of her as she has overcome so much in her first semester of high school. She not only is excelling in academic studies but in athletics as well as she and her Vincent Massey Vikings are playing in the city finals with hopes of venturing on to provincials. Mitana has come to understand her role on the team and has become a defensive presence as of late. It takes quite a bit of dedication for any student athlete to find success and Mitana seems to have found what works best for her. With future aspirations in graphic design and a hopefully a career in architecture we look forward to see how far this young Dakota woman can go.
