Gabrielle (Gabby) Begay

Opening Ceremony Keynote Speaker

Presentation Title: “Knowledge is Strength”

My name is Gabrielle (Gabby) Begay. I was born and raised in Silver City, NM. I received my Bachelor's of Applied Science in Criminal Justice from WNMU in 2013. I will be starting my graduate program this fall. I was a member of the Associated Students of WNMU. I held the positions of Senator, Vice-President, and President. I recently was nominated by the Governor of NM to serve on the Board of Regents for WNMU. The NM senate approved my nomination and I just began my term last month. I believe that knowledge is power and with education you can achieve anything.

 


Brittany Chiapetti

Award Ceremony Keynote Speaker.

Presentation Title: “Opportunity has No Limits”

Brittany Chiapetti is a current full-time student at Western New Mexico University working on a duel major in Zoology and Psychology. She was born and raised in New Mexico where she was in a strong academic environment learning from her teachers, animals, outdoor environment, family, and community. She developed a passion to learn and seize opportunities at a young age. Her youth environment and opportunities are what inspired her to become a zoologist and activist. In the summer of 2014 she traveled to a rural village in Thailand where she volunteered and conducted research on auditory elephant vocalization for the majority of the summer. Since her return Brittany has hosted educational and events and other opportunities in the university and community. This spring semester, Brittany received a scholarship to attend the National Student Women’s Leaders Conference at the University of Maryland on behalf of AAUW-NM. Brittany is rising to the peak of her academic career, beginning her personal career, and recognizing all of her potential.
