My name is Krista Bustamante, I'm a senior at Utah State University studying Political Science with an emphasis on International Relations and Spanish. I love to work with youth and the outdoors! I am Co-Director of Youth Discovery Inc, a non-profit organization in Cache Valley, UT. We help fund, expand, and create programs that benefit the underserved youth in our area. Our focus is on programs that include components such as mentoring, outdoor education, literacy development, confidence building, employability, and post-secondary preparedness. Past projects have included L@s Abej@s Summer Internship program for high school students focusing on community organic gardening, building bikes, theater and music to Summer Youth Camps for elementary students and support for the Latinos in Action program involving literacy, social and cognitive components. My goal is to make a difference in someone's life and through nature I feel I can accomplish that goal.
