My parents are from Chihuahua, Mexico, but moved to El Paso, Texas before I was born. We lived in El Paso for six years before moving to Colorado. I’m currently attending Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado and majoring in Criminal Justice, with a minor in Psychology. Since moving to Colorado, I have gained an interest in outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, and camping. I also enjoy visiting other places, like museums and the Denver zoo, and I really enjoy spending time with friends. I aspire to work in the criminal justice field, specifically in law enforcement until I am able to go to law school. I am passionate about social justice, and racial and gender equality. I believe this internship will help me be better connected, not only to the communities of big cities, but to rural areas too. Through this internship, I hope to gain a better understanding of agriculture, and the issues facing rural/reservation based communities and what we can do to help. It would be great to put this internship on my resume for any future career after my graduation so I can continue to contribute to the missions of Ogallala Commons and First Nations.
