Alberta teen went to Syria to help the wounded. She came back having fought ISIL

Shaelynn Jabs is like a lot of people. She just wanted to help.

But the aspiring 19-year-old paramedic from Drayton Valley took a step few would consider. Last fall, Jabs embarked on a six-month tour in Syria, fighting in the battle against the Islamic State (IS) before an explosion left her deaf in one ear, her injuries forcing her to return home.

Good for her.
