Native O.I.T. Student Attending State of Union Address in Washington, D.C.

President Obama is delivering his final State of the Union address tonight and a young Native student will get to witness it in person. Lydia Doza, who is Alaska Native, is attending the speech as a special guest of First Lady Michelle Obama. She will sit in a viewing box at the U.S. Capitol with Mrs. Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. Doza is a student at the Oregon Institute of Technology, where she is a junior in the software engineering program. Doza accepted the Generation Indigenous challenge and is encouraging young Native Americans, especially girls, to become interested in science, technology, engineering and math.
