My work with Alternative Spring Break in my home community of Neah Bay was the beginning of learning how to articulate myself. For the first time, I felt like I could belong to both worlds: the world of the Makah elementary students and the world of UW undergrads. It was during this surreal moment — having dinner as a guest at my former principals house — that I started to see how my academic life could circle back to my home community.
