Michelle Budiwski speaks after winning the entrepreneur award during the Champions of Aboriginal Employment Awards luncheon at the Victoria Inn's Imperial Ballroom on Wednesday.

Michelle Budiwski overcame a cocaine addiction and survived numerous suicide attempts to become a successful businesswoman and motivational speaker.

On Wednesday, Budiwski, who is Métis, received the entrepreneur award at the Interprovincial Association on Native Employment (IANE) Westman Champions of Aboriginal Employment Awards luncheon at the Victoria Inn.

Awards were also presented to Winmar Brandon and Assiniboine Community College president Mark Frison.

“It’s an honour to be recognized, but more importantly I see it as a way of giving other people hope,” Budiwski, who lives in Rivers, said in an interview on Tuesday. “That it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, or it doesn’t matter what’s happened to you. None of that matters. All that matters is where you want to go, and anything is possible.”
