Nyland Hall grew up in Moosonee and is a member of Fort Albany First Nation. Nyland has fond memories of playing with other First Nation youth in sports tournaments and made lasting friendships. He participates in First Nations communities by working at various summer jobs such as the Aboriginal Sport and Wellness Council of Ontario and he spent time travelling to First Nation communities across Ontario. In the future, Nyland hopes to contribute by providing job opportunities through construction and believes trades are a good career path for Indigenous youth. Eventually, Nyland wants to own a construction company.
