Crystal L. Becenti
Crystal Becenti is a respectful and diligent Navajo from Window Rock, Arizona. She is a junior majoring in psychology at Northern Arizona University. Her career goal is to become a counseling psychologist in the behavioral health field, working with Native adolescents who deal with substance abuse, depression, neglect, or violence issues. She plans to attend graduate school at University of Colorado. Her daily life is filled with a busy schedule of classes, homework, volunteering as a Big Sister, and a part time job, though she still finds time to enjoy running and spending time with her friends and family.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
