Pacific Students Media presents…
Blucy Jack, is a Marshallese transfer student currently attending University of Hawaii at Hilo, majoring in Administrative Justice and minoring in Women Studies. Blucy participated in the Pacific Islander Summer Bridge Program 2015.
Blucy grew up in Ailinglaplap island and also has roots from the islands of Jabot, Ailuk, and Jaluit in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
Blucy graduated from Marshall Islands High School in 2011, and College of the Marshall Islands in 2015 with an Associate’s Degrees in Liberal Arts.
Blucy’s short-term goal at the moment, as a student far from her home island, is to graduate with her Bachelor’s. Her long-term goal is to graduate and return home to give back to her home and family.
Ever since she was a kid, she’s had many people who have inspired her, especially her parents. They provided her with words of wisdom while others such as family and friends worked hard for their job in the Marshalls, giving her a good example of what she needed to do.
“First I want to give thanks to my parents who have watched over me ever since I was young. For if it was not for them, I would have not existed at this very moment as they’re watching this video. I want to tell them I said ‘Hi.’
Never give up. And especially fear God, as it states in our Bible, fearing God is the beginning of wisdom. Everyday we need to pray and give thanks to the Lord. Not only these but when we have a goal, as I know we students have goals, I want us to not give up but to keep striving forward. We will make it!”
What stood out… People who inspired her. She mentioned that her parents did so by giving her words of advice but the one thing that really stood out was the fact that she was really inspired by friends who work back home after graduating from colleges. She said that she wants to do the same, finish college and head back home to work. This stands out to me the most because it goes on to show that she is really focused on accomplishing her goals of finishing school and head back home to give back to her home island and community. Also for the fact that she’s putting up a good example for students back home thinking of pursuing college after high school. After hearing these, it gave me the feeling that she is embarking on a path towards success and she’s ready for it.
