Check Out This Navajo Teen’s Ingenious Invention!


Posted By Toyacoyah Brown July 25th, 2017 Blog


Even though she was attending high school far away from home, she never forgot about her family and how she could still help. This young woman's family lives on the Navajo reservation, where many homes still don't have electricity to heat their homes, relying mainly on coal and wood burning stoves.

So why not harness the power of the sun?



Amazing!

I agree with her family, how does her mind think that way! Super proud of this young lady. I hope she got some great scholarships for college from her hard work!

    You are an inspiration to young girls, showing them that they too can be the ones learning new things to improve your environment while still preserving your culture. I truly believe it to be the time to encourage young girls that they too can can make their own dreams come true through hard work and the support of their families and friends.
