You want to know who I am?
I can’t tell you, because I don’t really know who I am, but this is what I think so far.
I’m Jessica Stewart from Inuvik, NWT.
I’m Gwich-ialuit, with a little white man in my blood line.
I can be nice if you’re nice to me.
I’m the odd ball in my family, which means I’m different.
I have a lot of friends, and a few enemies.
But everybody has enemies.
I respect people only if they respect me.
My love for my family and my friends will never die.
My greatest fear is losing my one and only grandfather,
because I can’t live without him.
I can’t really explain my life because I don’t really understand
some things that go on, like who I want to be. There’s so
many things – I’m lost. But soon, one day, I will find the
starting point, and
Die at the ending.
I think that June is when I will start my new beginning. My
child will show me who I am and who I want to be in this
