My name is Alyssa Smallwood I am from the lummi nation in washington. I enjoy traveling and learning while i travel. I love meeting new people. The reason i signed up for the pipeline was because for a few obvious reasons such as, traveling, meeting new people, getting to see a collage campus, and learning to be independent. if i am being completely honest i wasn’t sure if i was going to come my cousin Mackayla was a huge part of me coming. my first day was quite entertaining i imaged it to be more like calm and not as energetic. i was very excited to come here and i have expectations for how it goes and the first day was what i wanted it to be. it was clearly a good first day.
