For the second year I have served as an intern at the UNITY headquarters in Mesa, AZ. The experience has been adventurous, eye opening, and rewarding as I have been blessed with the opportunity to give back to the organization that provided so much for my community and me.
My first involvement with UNITY dates back 6 years ago with the Kirtland Central Diné Youth Council where I earned my way to attend the 2009 National UNITY Conference in Albuquerque, NM. My first national conference with UNITY changed the trajectory of my life as I realized my own potential to make an impact on the world around me. I encountered so many inspirational people that I still admire and call upon as mentors for help and support. Since then I have been empowered to take ownership of my life and take charge of my community as a change agent to help others.
