Chayla C. Rowley
Chayla is majoring in civil engineering with an emphasis on developing communities at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She plans to create a foundation dedicated to training native tribes how to improve their water quality and self-sustain their water quality programs. The foundation will then train tribes with well-functioning programs to help develop the programs of other tribes and third world communities. During her breaks she volunteers on work trips both nationally and internationally. She believes there is nothing like learning from new cultures and finding ways she can give back to them.

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.
