What drew you to the Robertson Program? 

The biggest draw to the Robertson Scholar Leadership Program were the summer opportunities, specifically the Exploration Summer that will allow me to travel to a unique, unfamiliar place and make an impact through conservation and the Launch Summer that offers an opportunity for me to do research regarding Neurotransmitter levels in Native Americans, exploring differences between those living on reservations vs. not living on reservations; my goal is to provide a platform for Native Americans to demand better mental healthcare access. It’s so important to me that I always try to be a part of something bigger than myself and The Robertson offers that through their tight knit community and extensive alumni network.
