My parents are William Vanderpool and Birdie Billy of Beaver.
My grandparents are Nora Billy of Beaver and Eli-Bernice Aargon of Tanana.
I am 11 years old. My favorite thing about living in
my village is my subsistence lifestyle. I love hunting for geese, ducks and moose.
In the winter I love to trap.
My grandmother Nora Billy taught me how to work with diamond
willows. I first started two years ago and I really enjoy doing things with my hands.
When I grow up I’d like to be a pilot mechanic and a carpenter.
