Harvard Bound! Native American High School Student, Eva Ballew, Accepted to 10 Colleges

After years of hard work and always believing in herself, Pokagon Band of Potawatomi tribal member and Union Grove High School student Eva Ballew says she was taken by complete surprise when her phone rang and was told she was accepted to Harvard.

“I have to admit, in some ways it hasn’t even hit me yet,” Ballew told Indian Country Today. “When the admissions representative called me it was just unexpected. But I will say I don’t think I’ve ever had such a feeling of fulfillment. I was just so happy.”
