Student Spotlight – Christina Nukapigak

Fri, 04/13/2018 - 13:08

We are pleased to feature our new Student Spotlight, Christina Nukapigak who is currently pursuing her GED at Iḷisaġvik!

Where are you from?

I was born in Barrow, Alaska and moved to Quad Cities, Illinois at the age of 9

  What are you studying at Iḷisaġvik College?

I am studying and taking tests for my GED.

 

What made you decide to enroll in classes at Iḷisaġvik?

It was time.  It was time for me to find myself and build for my future.  I really wanted my boys to see me walk across the stage and graduate.  The reason I came back to Barrow was to be with my family while I was working on my educational goals.

 

What are your educational goals?

First, I plan to pass my final test and complete my GED.  Next, I will take Emergency Medical Services courses here at Iḷisaġvik

 

What are your hobbies when you aren’t studying or working?

We have a movie night where I watch movies with my kids.

  What advice do you have for people thinking about signing up for classes?

Don’t be afraid to take any classes that you think you might want or need.  Also, don’t be afraid to ask stupid questions

 

Anything else you want to add?

Treat your teachers nicely, they change your life.
