  • 0:06 - 0:09
    DO-IT scholars discuss the
    importance of college.
  • 0:09 - 0:10
    Is college important?
  • 0:13 - 0:14
    It's up to you!
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    But for me, it's very important!
  • 0:22 - 0:23
    I think that college is important because
  • 0:23 - 0:26
    it creates a pathway to
    the rest of your life
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    and it really shapes your identity
    as an adult.
  • 0:31 - 0:36
    College is a great place to discover your
    passions and meet new and exciting people!

    This video content was created
    by DO-IT scholars, high-school
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    students from an innovative transition
    to college program in Washington.
  • 0:50 - 0:52
    Scholars are students with disabilities.
  • 0:52 - 0:55
    They learn about self-determination,
    academic accommodations
  • 0:55 - 0:57
    and disability advocacy.

  • 1:03 - 1:09
    Going to college is important because
    we're always learning in life and college
  • 1:09 - 1:14
    is a way to help us do that, and that is
    what shapes us in our later lives.
  • 1:15 - 1:19
    The great thing about college is
    it can help you get a better paying job.
  • 1:20 - 1:22
    What I hope to get out of college
    is a great financial future.
  • 1:24 - 1:29
    What I enjoyed most about college was
    the chance to live on my own and become
  • 1:29 - 1:33
    more independent, explore life
    and who I am
  • 1:33 - 1:35
    and make a life for myself,
    with my friends.
  • 1:37 - 1:40
    DO-IT scholars stay in dorms
    during summer study
  • 1:40 - 1:42
    at the University of Washington Campus.
  • 1:42 - 1:46
    They meet mentors, faculty members
    and business professionals.
  • 1:48 - 1:51
    I think college is important because it
    allows you to get to know so many
  • 1:51 - 1:55
    different types of people and see
    so many new perspectives on
  • 1:55 - 1:57
    every problem or every situation
    that you might face
  • 1:58 - 2:01
    and I believe this is really important,
    because it really allows you
  • 2:01 - 2:02
    to get to know other people.
  • 2:03 - 2:06
    I think college is important because
    it's a time to find yourself,
  • 2:06 - 2:11
    see what you're good at, what you like
    and what you're successful at.
  • 2:13 - 2:18
    Going through college, I want to
    understand my reason for being
  • 2:18 - 2:21
    and I want to understand why
    I am the way I am.
  • 2:22 - 2:25
    Scholars participate in science labs
    and academic workshops
  • 2:25 - 2:27
    and learn about technology.
  • 2:28 - 2:34
    I think college is important because
    you get a headstart in preparing for
  • 2:34 - 2:39
    getting a job some day and to pursue
    your dreams and hopefully get paid.
  • 2:39 - 2:43
    I want to go into business,
    and it would be really hard for me
  • 2:43 - 2:47
    to get a job in business
    without getting a college degree.
  • 2:53 - 2:56
    Many of the DO-IT scholars use assisted
    technology designed for
  • 2:56 - 2:57
    people with disabilities.
  • 3:00 - 3:03
    Life has changed so much for the world in
    general, but especially for
  • 3:03 - 3:05
    people with disabilities.
  • 3:06 - 3:11
    The awesome thing is now that we can go
    to college and we can be a part of
  • 3:11 - 3:13
    continuing to change the world.
  • 3:13 - 3:18
    That's why college is so important. Not to
    get a piece of paper or a degree,
  • 3:18 - 3:21
    but to make actual change
    happen in the world.
  • 3:22 - 3:28
    I'm gonna go to college, I'm gonna get
    my BFA, and guess what?
  • 3:28 - 3:30
    I'm gonna be a star!
  • 3:38 - 3:41
    Thank you! Good girl!
