Dang-Dang Gruben is a student from Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada. Dang-Dang had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when he participated on a Students on Ice expedition, where he travelled on an expedition vessel to Nunavut and Greenland. This experience was an excellent way for Dang-Dang to explore other geographical locations, meet people from around the world, see different types of wildlife and witness the changing environment firsthand.
In Inuvik, Dang-Dang has been raised and taught the traditional ways of living off the land by harvesting animals, hunting caribou, geese and other migratory animals. When he grows up he would like to be a Renewable Resource Officer and have the opportunity to work with many different people, the land and the animals.
