Scholastic’s Scope Magazine is looking for Native female college freshman (or close to that year) to interview for an educational magazine for middle/high school students nationally. The interview will focus on how Native females from reservations or culturally rooted backgrounds are able to leave home and be successful in college. For more information please see email below.

I'm writing an article for Scholastic's Scope magazine (an educational magazine that goes to middle school and high school classrooms across the country). I'm looking to interview a young Native American woman who grew up on a reservation and is now a freshman in college (or near that age). We want to help teen readers understand what it feels like to straddle those two worlds. I'm looking for someone thoughtful, insightful, articulate, open and hopeful--someone who can perhaps talk about cultural challenges that she's had to overcome.
One important note is that I'd need to interview the girl over the phone and write the piece by the end of this week, so it's very urgent. Any chance you know a girl who might be a good fit? If so, I'd love to hear from you right away.
