Meet Makia
   Meet Mako "Makia" Ibrahim...  she joined us in Spring of 2019 and her journey is an incredible one. She hopes to inspire others through her story and we are proud to have her as a part of the Ignite Family. 
Makia joined us via a collaboration with Covenant House in Vancouver, we take 0% commission from the youth that come to us from Covenant House and encourage our actors to give back with volunteer opportunities in the community. We believe its our responsibility to maintain a healthy mental wellness in an industry with many pressures and believe volunteering to help others is a great way to do this.
