William comes to us from the Lummi Nation and although not originally from there; he strives to create positive change in his community. He helped start Teens Against Tobacco Use (TATU), which is an anti-smoking campaign for Native youth. William wants to share stories of inspiration and encourage Native youth to show them that there are alternative ways to approach difficult problems. He wants to share his experiences throughout life and show his fellow youth, that anything is possible. Along with being a We R Native Youth Ambassador, William is a Champion for Change. A program ran through The Center for Native American Youth that has empowered him to step up and be a leader in his community. It has also given him the opportunity to meet the President of the United States. Be on the lookout for William, as the work he’s doing will come to a community near you.
