Sharaya Edgewater

Yá’át’ééh, shí éíí Sharaya Edgewater yinishyé. Tótsohnii nishłí Ma’ii Deeshgiizhnii bashishchiin Kin łichíí’nii dashicheii Lók’aa’ dine’é dashinialí. Díwózhii Biiʼ Tó dęę naasha. Greetings, my name is Sharaya Edgewater, and I am big water clan born for coyote pass. I come from Greasewood Springs, Arizona, and am a proud member of the Navajo Nation. In the spring of 2016, I graduated from Ganado High School and attended Central Arizona College from 2016-2018. During my time at CAC, I was a member of the rodeo team, participated and volunteered in the promotion of the sport of rodeo amongst the youth, and obtained my Associate of Science degree. From there I advanced my education at ASU and received my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry Cum Laude. While at ASU I worked as a habilitation specialist with special needs kids, shadowed various physicians and PAs, and spent my weekends riding horses. Since graduating in 2020, I’ve been working as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, also known as a Medical Technologist, at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center, where I perform patient testing in an outpatient, inpatient, and emergency setting. Currently, I am 24 years old and pursuing my master’s in Public Health at Grand Canyon University. Outside of school and work I spend my free time volunteering with the Humane Society of the White Mountains and spending time with my family and horses. During my reign as Miss Indian Rodeo 2022-2023, I look forward to spreading awareness and promoting the sport of rodeo across Indian country.
