Raquel “Kelly” Redshirt is originally from Shiprock, New Mexico and is a member of the Navajo tribe. She believes a broken system exists in her homeland where many still do not have easy access to cooking fuel or alternative solutions. Redshirt has answered the call for change through a homemade solar oven project she began in seventh grade. Now an environmental engineering student at the University of Oklahoma, she plans to eventually return to the Navajo Nation where she can use her knowledge to create a brighter, greener future for her people.
