Hi! My name is Rayya Cao and I’m a direct descendant from the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, the only federally recognized tribe in the state of Alabama located in Poarch, AL. I’m also a current high senior at Petal High School located in Petal, MS. I’m involved with my school’s CTE (Career Technical Education) Sport Medicine I & II course. The past 2 years of being in sports medicine has taught me how to properly care for athletes while giving them the best treatment they can receive to get back to what they love doing best. During my experience in Sports Medicine, I’ve been certified in the American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR AED Program, which gave me the opportunity to see first hand in a life crisis on what to do and how to properly save a person’s life. I’ve traveled to Washington D.C. for the past 2 years to represent my tribe to discuss current issues on what’s going on with Native Americans, rights and responsibilities of dual citizenships, and the complex relationship between tribal nations and the federal government. During my experience in Washington, DC, I’ve met with tribal leaders and the USET (United South and Eastern Tribes Inc) Council, I’ve gotten a authentic look at the American political system. I’ve learned to examine historical tensions between native nations and the U.S. federal government while exploring Washington’s famous monuments, memorials, and institutions. My experience in our nation’s capital also taught me good leadership and social skills while developing and presenting a Tribal Action Initiative after speaking with experts about issues facing Indian Country today.

January 21, 2021

by Izzy Hall

There are a lot of scholarships out there, some more conventional than others. Last time, we discussed a scholarship for students interested in becoming part of the chicken industry, but even that scholarship is far from the weirdest. There are some scholarships out there that have unusual criteria, to say the least. It may be based on something totally out of your control, like your height or last name. It may be awarded on how much you like a card game, or to whomever comes up with the most creative way to use a household product. It may even be for students interested in… potatoes? No joke, these five scholarships are some of the weirder ones on our site. Are you weird enough to apply? [...]
