Personal Statement

I am Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma citizen from Little Axe, OK. I am a transfer student from Northwestern Oklahoma State University. At Northwestern, I helped create the Native American Student Association with some friends from eastern Oklahoma. I’m majoring in Journalism, but minoring in Native American Studies. My goals are to learn more about Native American history and apply that to my journalism background in hopes of giving equal representation to Native American people.
