LaDawn K. Yazzie
LaDawn is of the Honaghaahníí clan of the Navajo people. A Culinary Arts degree has led her to major in Food Service Management at Arizona State University. LaDawn advocates the health of the American Indian people, and plans to establish a teaching kitchen for children in her community. By instilling children with heart healthy habits, she challenges to find positive possibilities in long term health and wellness. Her influences on tribal policy have directed her attention to the diabetes disease, helping to educate about unhealthy caloric intake, diminishing obesity, with sound intentions to moderate wholesome diets.

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.
