KETCHIKAN — Audrey Hudson recalled sitting for picture day in the third grade in Metlakatla.
Then named Audrey Wasuli, her picture was taken and her class was asked what they wanted to be when they grew up.
Boys said they wanted to be police officers or firefighters, Hudson said, while the girls in the class wanted to be nurses and teachers.
“I was reluctant to put myself out there and say what I really wanted to,” she said. “I summoned all my courage and I finally said, ‘I want to be mayor of Metlakatla.’”
