Breanna's dream is to work with a team of local youth to educate their rural community about diabetes prevention and healthy eating.

Her project will locally address the epidemic of diabetes and poor nutrition that many Native communities face. It would also teach the Native youth team members leadership skills, training in public speaking, and promotion and organizing to help them follow their dreams.
