I decided to continue my education to show my children, nieces, and nephew that if I can, so can they. I chose to attend NWIC because it is so close to home. I also chose to continue my education at NWIC because of the support from staff and instructors like Laurel Ballew and Michelle Wilson. I am inspired by all of the things I have learned while attending NWIC and am proud to be one of the first students to graduate from the Muckleshoot site with a BA in the TGBM program.
NWIC gave me the opportunity to not only meet, but exceed, my goals in pursuing higher education.
I enjoy going to NWIC because of the support and opportunities that are available. For me, attending a tribal college was what was best for me. It has provided me with opportunities to network in the native community, and get the degree I want. Being part of a tribal college is important and beneficial because it allows natives, like myself, to be educated while embracing who we are as a native people.
