She is Yoeme (Yaqui) and she lives a life walking in two worlds, Indigenous and American, never really feeling like she belongs in either one. She goes out of her way to be available to those that share the same journey. She has taken it upon herself to learn the ways of others and engage them with respect and without prejudice. Much of her academic research has been focused on closing gaps caused by inequities and directing resources to those in need. She plans on continuing to be a resource by sharing her difficult journey through the minority-phobic American formal education system, including how she progressed from academic dismissal to being inducted into the Delta Mu Delta Honors Society with a 4.0 GPA. She plans to continue to use her education and skills in service to her Native American community when she graduates in 2023.
