2002-2003 scholarship recipients
"I would really like to start small
in my own garage with my own IT business. This business
will help all of Kahnawake, some thing like a help support
center. You see instead of having a full time technician
on hand, you have many technicians on call that I will
employ. This will help Kahnawake by saving some money
and if there is anything that has to be done fast we
can do it.
"I would start in Kahnawake with
about two or three technicians running part time at
first. Then when I grow, I will start hiring and hopefully
get big enough to start a small technical school for
natives across the Americas. This way I not only help
Kahnawake but all kinds of people and I also make a
major contribution to the computer world, just like
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Michael Dell."
Joselyn Grant, Tlingit, Teslin
from Whitehorse, Yukon, 2002 -2003 scholarship recipients
"My dream is to travel and experience
the world with my family while not being chained to
a desk. I am very intrigued by the challenges and opportunities
that technology has to offer and I am poised to take
part in any learning opportunities that may come my
way. I dream one day doing my work via satellite while
driving down the Alaska Highway."
"I see Multimedia as the heart
of the Internet and I would love to have an impact on
the creation of the technological content that is presented
to the world."
