Donna M. Neagle
Donna Neagle is a junior at the University of Washington School of Nursing who is pursuing her doctorate in psychiatric nursing in order to work with kids who have survived abuse. As a sophomore she founded the Native American Nursing Project (NANP) in order to equip and encourage high school Native American students to pursue a higher education with a focus on nursing. Her passion for her project came from growing up as the fifth child in a Tlingit family of thirteen and becoming the first to attend high school and the first to go onto college.

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.
