I have been a lifelong learner for a while as I started with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute affiliated with George Mason in 2016. The past two years, I have expanded this to include auditing courses at George Mason University. I love that GMU has an Indigenous Studies minor and have enjoyed taking courses in this area and as well as participating in the discussions. I have also taken courses in two other areas of interest which are Theatre and Video Communications. I am looking forward to what other courses that will mesh with my varied interests. I also enjoy mentoring the students that are part of the Native American and Indigenous Alliance.
