I want to go to college because I want to help protect the ocean by pursuing my dream in being a marine biologist. Being indigenous and a marine biologist at the same time is something we really need right now and for the future. I want to bring the combination of tradition and science together to protect what needs protection. I also want to have the experience of swimming and studying amazing creatures of the ocean. Gathering research on creatures of the deep and not-so deep is a life long dream I want to accomplish. I could also pass down what I learned to the youth and generations after me.
Today was a very busy day. We woke up, exercised, ate a deliciously made breakfast by our residential elder, Joe The Amazing, went to a very exciting acting class, went to our English class reading The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, had break in between and fell of the slack line and got pretty messed up, learned about genetics, and we discussed self care. The highlight of the day was when Scott invited us to his house so we could go swimming. Today was a very busy, tiring, painful (in a couple of the students cases, me included), and plenty of fun. Grateful for another day living. Thank you ❤
