I’m super excited to begin my first year here at PFFS. I was born in Flagstaff and was raised between there and the Navajo Reservation. I am mostly Navajo, but I am also Ho-Chunk, Sac and Fox, Rosebud Sioux, and Potawatomi. I have many interests and hobbies but chief among them are basketball, writing, reading, and art. I was very actively involved in my high school where I was editor of the yearbook; basketball coach to middle school boys, girls, and the varsity girls team; one-time captain of the basketball team; photographer for the Flagstaff hockey teams; as well as participating in several sports.

After high school I took a year off and I became a makeup artist and coached the varsity girls team. Before I made the decision to attend U of A, I was offered the position of  JV boys basketball coach. I moved to Tucson in 2016 and attended U of A for a year and a half before I realized it was too expensive for someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. I hope to finish getting a degree before I’m 25 and move back to Flagstaff.
