I am Dine' (Navajo) from New Mexico and have been writing poetry since my elementary school years. I work with Native communities on social justice and sexual health, including previously at the North Dakota State University American Indian Public Health Resource Center and the National Native American AIDS Prevention Center. On the What Works in Youth HIV project, I coordinate technical assistance, including developing content for webinars, and serve as a subject matter expert on Native youth.
Vision for adolescent health and HIV prevention/treatment:
For all youth—and those that work with them—to develop and support their whole selves through holistic health, and to have families, friends, peers, environments, and communities of strength and caring.
