I will not be another statistic.

Caitlin Defoe,
RedLake, MN.

I want to be one of the few that leave the reservation and get an education and make a life for myself. Most of the kids I went to elementary and most of middle school with are still living on the reservation but with kids that they weren’t ready for with low-paying jobs. I know they have the potential to live lives greater than they are living but that is all they know. I want to change that and I want to be an example of what they could do with that potential.
