Rapid City, SD
Han, Miye Lowanla emaciyapi ksto!
I am Lakota Sioux; I grew up and attended school on the Cheyenne River Reservation in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. Since my early childhood and into my teens, I have always had an interest in math and science. My current interests are pre-engineering in chemistry, physics, and environmental design. I currently reside in Rapid City, South Dakota while I attend the Oglala Lakota College. For the past 12 years I have worked with youth and teens in my community. In the summer of 2021, I had the opportunity to work as the Activities Director for AIS PREP Rapid City, SD Site. I enjoyed my time working in this capacity very much and as of August 2021 I have advanced in my role, becoming the AIS PREP Rapid City, SD Site Coordinator. I have a strong desire to help our Native youth excel and succeed toward careers in STEM. I am dedicated to my conviction of encouraging our youths' identity within their Native American culture and language.
