My name is Malaysia Persinger. I am Diné from the Navajo Nation and a full-time student at the University of New Mexico. I am studying to become a pediatric travel nurse and am drawn to the nursing profession because of its challenging and demanding role. I want to push myself every day, engaging my academic interests, and to learn and improve as a person. I am also the CEO of my own chocolatier confectionary business as well as CEO of my own formal dress boutique. My other credits include being a fashion influencer, professional international model, professional accredited actress and personal stylist. In my free time, I promote the importance of self-awareness and acceptance.
