Iona Stevens is 19 years old, and is from Ganado, Arizona.
Iona wants to know more about wildlife and surveying for birds, and also wants to be more comfortable outdoors as she didn’t camp much as a kid. Iona initially learned about the position through a career advisor at her school. She hopes to gain more wildlife knowledge and be more connected to nature by the end of the internship.
After the internship, Iona plans to go back to college at the Institute of American Indian Arts to study Fine Arts and Navajo Linguistics, and she also might apply for a job at the New Mexico Zoo.
