NATIVE YOUTH PIPELINE 2012
JANE KNOWS HIS GUN
Thoughts on College
Coming to this program has helped me prepare for college life. In the fall I will be attending the University of Redlands and I am so excited to go.
College Essay So many people in this world would want to be famous for something so insignificant. If I were allowed the chance to have fame for at least fifteen minutes it would not be for something as little as being a movie star or a famous pop star. To me that kind of fame means nothing. There would be a reason for my fame, a reason for everybody in not only our country but the whole world to be happy about. This fame would be very significant and for something that I could be proud of for the rest of my life. It would affect those who knew nothing about me and it would cause a change in the world for as long as anybody lived. Joy would be spread throughout the world and people would be dancing in the streets. The change would range from little children to even to elders. Lives would be opened up to so many more opportunities and families would be brought back together. People would not have to stress anymore and they could believe that anything is possible, even the impossible. What is the fame for? I would have my fifteen minutes of fame for curing cancer.
I met so many new people and they have become like a family to me! I will miss everybody when we have to leave each other.
I learned how to connect with Mother Nature and to appreciate everything that she provides.
Why am I here? When I first decided to come to this program I had no idea what to expect. I thought it would be with a bunch of serious people. I came because I wanted to be more prepared when I enter college this fall. I soon found that I had a family here that wanted to be there for me and also wanted me to have a good experience. This program has taught me so much not only educationally but culturally as well. The people I have met will always be in my life now and I am very appreciative of the bonds this program has made for me.
