Executive Committee2019-2020 National UNITY Council Executive Committee

Tyloria Antone 

Hello, my name is Tyloria Antone. I am 16 years old, and I attend Baboquivari High School as a Junior. I reside in the Hikiwañ community on the Tohono O’odham Nation, but I come from the Hualapai and Havasupai tribes of Peach Springs, AZ. I currently sit on the Tohono O’odham Nation Youth Council as a representative for my district. My interests include writing, reading, playing sports, and listening to music. I have always seen myself as a person to be involved by giving a helping hand to those in need. I always knew I could give my ideas and positive words to those who chose to hear what I had in mind. Over the years, I’ve seen myself grow and become a stronger person. An interest has grown in me and I knew I always wanted to be involved with youth, in order to be able to hear their stories and the great things that they make of themselves. Thank you!
