Laura Lhokta was raised on the White Earth Nation in northwestern Minnesota, and she's looking forward to going back when she completes her schooling.

Laura is a medical student at UMD who plans to go home to her tribal community after she graduates.

She talks of the family and friends she has cheering her on back home, but admits it's not that way for every kid on the reservation.
