Genevieve Schroeder-Arce

Hello! I'm a 17 year old senior at LASA High School and a proud Indigenous writer, artist, and activist. My most meaningful work experience comes from my service as an assistant instructor Indigenous Cultures Institute Summer Encounter in San Marcos, Texas. There, I regularly use my theatre, dance, and arts background to help teach Indigenous youth about their lineage and culture in a constructive, decolonized way. Thanks to the lessons I learned as a participant at ICI, I have become a strong advocate for centering Indigenous communities and creating safe spaces for young people to play and grow. In addition, I am now a proud member of the LASA Raptor Band where I am learning Color guard for the first time! It is truly a rewarding experience to be surrounded by positive, welcoming people on a daily basis working tirelessly to put on a fantastic show for our community. In college, I hope to expand my knowledge of both STEM and Indigenous disciplines to serve and uplift my Indigenous community and others around the world.
