Native American Heritage Month: Do you have a success story?

Do you have a success story?
Celebrating Native American Heritage Month
“I love to see people move up on the ladder of success, because every success story reassures that possibilities in life are still endless.”
― Edmond Mbiaka
In anticipation of Native American Heritage Month in November, we want to celebrate your successes by sharing your stories! We are looking for American Indian and Alaska Native people of all ages who have experienced success for obtaining, reaching, or actively working towards their goals.
Have you or someone you know recently graduated from high school or college with a high GPA, or scholarship? Started a new job or course of study? Have you done something that deserves recognition? It does not matter how big or small your successes are, they all make a difference and help to inspire others.
Share your story!
We want to share your stories of hope and celebrate the strides being made by people of all ages during Native American Heritage Month. Stories will be shared on our social media platforms, and will be compiled on our website throughout the month.
We welcome written stories, audio, or video submissions! Written submissions can be made at the link below, or if you would like to submit and audio or video story, please send them to us at cph-nativecenter@uiowa.edu.
What should my story include?
As a general guide, a good story of success might include:
  • Inspiration: what made you want to accomplish this goal?
  • How did you get started? Did anyone help along the way?
  • What challenges did you face? Did you ever think you wouldn’t be able to do it?
  • Now that you have reached this goal, do you see yourself differently? What do you want to do next?
Responses can be completely anonymous if you submit them at the survey link. You will have an option to share your email address with us if you are interested in participating in a panel or to be interviewed as a part of our Heritage Month events, but this is not required.
