About Nova Stevens
Nova Stevens is a South-Sudanese Canadian who immigrated to Canada at the age of 6, leaving her large family behind. Growing up in Canada, Nova was fully independent by the age of 15, living alone and finishing school. Having to essentially raise herself and support her family back home, she realized she would need support. With the help of the Aspen Family’s Transition to Adulthood program, she was able to focus on school in addition to her very adult responsibilities.
All these experiences taught Nova that it really does take a village to raise a child to be the best they can be. From a young age age, she vowed to give back to the community that raised her. This is how she came to form the organization ‘Go Supernova’ to help underprivileged youth reach their potential.”Canada has raised me and given me more opportunities than i can imagine, I want to pay it forward by doing the same for others” ~Nova Stevens
I believe that anyone can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
To resource underprivileged youth and to help them find and develop their inner strengths in order to shine.
For every child to grow up feeling loved, supported and held by their community.
