My plan is going to UCLA for my four-‐ year graduate school then moving to New York to attend Colombia University. My favorite food is Ramen Noodles. Thank You
ELDERS Over the course of this pipeline, there has been many elders I have meet: Aunti Rose, Robert John, and Jimmy Blueyes. They have all taught me so much and I will never forget them. The taught me to love, respect, and care for the mother earth due to all the things it continues to do for me now.
CHUMASH VILLAGE So nice, passionate, beautiful, kind, greatness all describe the Chumash Village. These people have taught me a lot about my pride. I never used to tell people I was Native American. And for that I thanks you a million times.
Wow! The experiences I have created for myself at Western were absolutely phenomenal. I always have dreamed to become a doctor and It has given me the hands on experience at a very young age. I want to give the pipeline a special thanks for giving us this opportunity. Seeing the human cadavers, to stitching a up a pig was amazing. This was an early start to my future
