Samantha's dream is to create a support group for Native youth to deal with grief and loss.

Native youth often face loss of family members, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse, and other struggles. They also struggle to deal with these challenges because of historical trauma and deculturalization, as well as a lack of culturally relevant services like this project. 

The project will create a safe environment for Native youth to deal with these issues with their peers, led by a professional mental health counselor, so that they can properly heal.
