Alaska: Aleut, Washington State University
My name is McKenna Magaidh Merle. I am a 19 year old proud Aleut – Alaska Native who is a Senior at Washington State University, majoring in Biology with a minor in Microbiology. At 18, I graduated from Community College with an Associates in Biology and an Associates in General Education as well as my high school diploma. I am currently applying for veterinary school – keep your fingers crossed for 1st time acceptance! My educational pursuits are all in support of my life-long aspirations: enhancing the safe interactions between humans and animals by limiting Zoonotic diseases. This is all in an effort to benefit Indigenous Peoples through the perpetuation and enhancement of our subsistence living.
