My name is Berne Givens. I have attended Northwest Indian College for a few years now. As the single mother to my daughter, Sarah Shandiin Givens, I have given it my all toward simultaneously working and schooling to provide her with a quality life.
My college is unique because it has many opportunities geared toward Native Americans such as myself. I am Creek and Navajo and believe in continuing my education for the sake of upholding my tribal expectations. This school helps me to do that.
If I could do this all over, I would not mind choosing my school all over again.
