“My educational goal is to focus on bringing solar energy to my community. Whether it is lighting up the whole house or pumping water. Having light and water is what my community needs in order to help sustain life.”

School: Navajo Technical University, Crownpoint, NM

Major: Bachelor of Science – Electrical Engineering

Personal Objectives: My Navajo community is patriarchal and as a female we’re supposed to be nurses, teachers or lawyers, moms, not engineers. I want the youth to know that it is okay to do a “man’s” job.
