Jacqueline, Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, wants to be a voice in my community.
I am a positive role model in my community and I hope to be a positive role model to other Native American youth that are seeking a career in the medical field. The one thing I am passionate about is getting Native youth more interested in medical careers. One of the biggest issues on my reservation is our health care. We do not have enough health care providers for our people. I plan to become a physician assistant after my bachelors degree and then work at IHS here in Flandreau. One skill I can bring to this position is power of persuasion. I am a proud member of the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe and I am proud to be Native and I am respectful of my culture, heritage, ancestors and future generations to come.
