Reasons why it’s hard for Native American students to attend college

1. A reason why it’s hard for Native American students is because they could possibly be homeless and have a hard time deciding on paying for classes or rent.

2. Another reason is because sometimes a majority of Native American students don’t have any support including family.

3. Many Native American students have had a rough life, maybe even poverty. So without anyone believing in them, they won’t believe in themselves, and that could lead up to them not believing that they’ll be successful in college.

4. Sometimes their families don’t always have money for college so they look for other people, but the tribes can’t help them pay for college either. It would be hard as a Native American student to go to college if they didn’t have any money, or they were poor.

5. In many tribes there are drugs and alcohol, and it affects teenagers too. Once they start getting addicted they won’t want to stop until they’re hooked for good. Being an addict is hard to recover from and it would be hard as a Native American student to get into college if they’re addicted to some drug because there will be no motivation.

My Day; While reading our assigned books I wanted to keep reading and learn what happens next. It just reminds me of how when handling depressing news can affect you in a destructive way. Rowdy did take it in a destructive way with his best friend and I was very surprised on what happened.


Why going to college is important;

Going to college is important because you’re finishing your education needed for life. Also education is the key to life, many people who don’t go to college end up having a bad job. Another reason is because it can help you succeed in your goals for careers, like i want to study ecology and college would give me the opportunity to accomplish my goals. People who go to college earn twice as much money as those who don’t. Peoples children will have more opportunities for school, and cars.

Blogging for the Day

My name is Kyla, I come from Washington, and my tribe is Lummi. I attend Ferndale High School, play soccer there, and my favorite subject is English. An achievement I am proud of is going into honors next semester.

I wanted to attend Pitzer Pipeline Program because I wanted to learn more about college, I love California, and when I go to college I want to be in California.

The first day was very long because we woke early and had many activities to do today. Although it was long, I still had fun but my hands stink.
