Elders are a big part of getting help to prepare for college, whether they’re in the the family or just part of the community, talking with them or listening to them can be a motivation to want to go to college and help your own community.

Cultural knowledge and participation in ceremony helps with preparing for college and getting a better education because it can teach discipline depending on what you do.

Giving back to my community in the future is a motivation to go to college because I want to get a better education in ways to help people in my communities. I want to learn how to help people that are alcoholics or have a drug addiction so it will be less of a problem on the reservation. I also want to become educated in how to help people with diabetes because it is common in native americans and members of both sides of my family have it.
