You’re resources on going to college is first up to you. You’ll always have friends and family to help guide you. You’re gonna have to ask yourself “is attending college important in my life?” You are the only one to decide to continue your education. When you have decided to attend college you must have a plan and ask questions to prepare yourself on what to expect. I have chosen to further my education by being involved academically, socially, culturally and athletically. This gives me a sense of motivation and support from my peers. I accepted the challenge to go to college and use the best of my abilities to become a role model for my siblings and Native youth enrolled in my tribe. I encourage the other Indigenous Youth!
Today was truly heartfelt from listening to the elders who’ve traveled far to be here with us. I am truly grateful to have them around and continuing their stories and traditions. Also supporting us to do the same.
