Artist Bio: My name is Lexana Margarita Echegaray and I am a proud member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. I’m a sophomore at Desert View High school and I’m a small business owner. The root of my success and choices started from my hard times in my childhood. I found comfort in art and it’s an ongoing passion of mine. Although I love art, I am working hard and one day hope to become a sustainability engineer or sustainability consultant. I hope to be part of the change and make the world a better place.
