Southwest: Navajo Nation, Lawrence University

Ya’at’eeh! My name is Bailey Nez and I am from the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. I come from the Red Running into the Water Clan and Tangle Clan. I attend school in Appleton, Wisconsin, at Lawrence University where I am majoring in Environmental Science with a minor in Geoscience and also play varsity volleyball. I completed my first year with a 3.972 GPA and hope to continue on this path in my academic career. I ultimately hope to practice Environmental Law by using my education in Environmental Science and Geology to provide solid legal advice to tribal nations in environmental protection matters. My greatest passion is to work on behalf of tribes to aid in the protection and conservation of our Mother Earth’s natural resources. I’ve wanted to work to protect the Earth since I was a child and am now pursuing my future career in college with the assistance of wonderful organizations like the Native American Fish and Wildlife Society. A’hee’hee, thank you!
