I chose to study abroad in Melbourne, Australia for many reasons, the top reason being that I am very curious to explore Australia backgrounds and culture. I am from a small town in Pennsylvania, named Dallas and knew I wanted to branch out of my comfort zone completely and experience what the world has to offer. This is the first time I will be traveling to Australia, the furthest I have ever traveled. I believe this once in a lifetime experience will teach me more about myself and the extensive diversities that make up the world around me. I hope to travel and gain an understanding of as much Australian culture as I can.

Ya’at’eeh anooltsoos! Honaghaanii nishli. Tabaaha bashishchiin. Dibe Lizhini dashicheii doo Toheedliinii dashinali. Shi ei Taishiana Tsosie yinishye. Ma’ii Tohidee’ naasha. (Hello everyone!) My name is Taishiana Tsosie. It’s pronounced ty-shee-aw-na so-see. I’m a junior Sociology major, Africana Studies minor from Houck, Arizona. I am Dine (Navajo). In English, I am One Who Walks Around Clan, born for Water’s Edge Clan. My maternal grandparents are Black Sheep Clan and my paternal grandparents are Bitter Water Clan. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I am studying at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. I chose to study in New Zealand because of their Indigenous Studies program and Maori indigenous culture. Such a setting and experience is parallel to my own. I figured it would be most beneficial to me academically and personally. Academically, I wanted to have some form of exposure to Indigenous Studies as a sociologist. I want to study contemporary social issues of Indigenous people from all around the world, but to start, I will begin in the states. For a future career, it is my hope to one day work in either a social services nonprofit organization or conduct my own field research in Native American communities to “decolonize” or reclaim a primarily white-dominated discipline. I want to support and show how much I care about my ancestors, my culture, my relatives, and future generations of Indigenous youth by accomplishing three things: 1.) Obtaining a bachelor’s from a liberal arts institution across the country, 2.) demonstrating that it is possible to leave and then come home to help Native communities, finally, 3.) no one can tell indigenous youth that they can be more than their trauma or upbringing.
I see the University of Waikato as an opportunity to make my dreams a reality.
