Maria, Yakama Nation, is making sure that there are healthy activities that Native youth can get involved in.
Seeing so many youth my age struggling with the boredom and day to day struggles and set backs of living on reservations makes me want to help with activities that will help them be productive and successful adults. Hopefully realizing that as a community we can thrive on and off the reservation and bring back our new teachings to our people. I am passionate about any health aspect that I can help my community with. Be it nutrition, pediatric teachings or just new health information over all. Native communities struggle with being healthy because of inadequate or lack there of of-health care. Anything that will help us we the healthy side of life really interest me. Although I am not the most outgoing person. I think I am very easy to talk to and am very good at getting teachings across in a productive exciting way. I am very nice and relatable too. I have seen life on and off the reservation which can help me have a broader more humble perspective on things.
