Ya’a’teeh my name is Erin Lewis Johns. I am from the Navajo reservation, living in Window Rock,AZ. My clans are the tobacco people, born for the folded arms people, my maternal grandparents are the cliff dwelling people, and my paternal grandparents are the red house clan. I am 22 years, and a junior at the University of New Mexico. Currently I am a Pre-Med student majoring in medical laboratory science and planning to go into dermatology or cardiology as profession. As a youth with a whole future ahead of me, I plan to go get another degree in Native American studies. Being in Pre-Med I plan to go to medical school and do my residency at University of Michigan or University of Oklahoma. I also serve on the United Natives youth council and an intern for the University of New Mexico’s Biomedical Research program. Being active in these projects with many more to come, I believe they will help me on my academic journey and far more opportunities to come.

Hello, my name is Brooke Betsuie. I am from the Zuni Edge Water clan and born for the Red House People. I come from my maternal grandfather’s clan, Towering house clan, and my paternal grandfather’s clan, Water Comes Together clan. I grew up in rural parts of the Navajo reservation called Tse’ Łigai Haasti’, meaning white rock that sticks out. My family and I called this White Mesa, our home. I am an incoming senior attending Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona with a major in Public Health and minor in Applied Indigenous Studies. I applied to be an intern to be a part of the resolution in helping Indigenous communities as well as advocating for these people. I also would like to learn from this experience and gain public speaking skills and interpersonal relationship skills. This internship will also aid in my experiences within the field of public and help in my knowledge of prevention and intervention research within my academic career.
