How has education changed your life/your family?

I was raised in low-income, rural community in a household that understood the value of education. My parents attended Haskell Institute and received technical certificates. However, we did not have the means for me to attend college nor did I feel prepared after graduating high school. I served four years in the military and then began my long career as a college student. Fortunately, I was supported by federal financial aid, G.I. Bill, American Indian College Fund, and the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. As an under resourced, under prepared, first-generation college student, higher education propelled me to a successful career and has compelled me to become an advocate.
