Hello! My name is Nick Mortimore and I am a rising Junior at the University of Arizona majoring in biochemistry and minoring in statistics and data science. I enjoy doing research on human illness and I am currently studying amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in the Zarnescu Lab using a fruit fly model of the disease. After graduating from the University of Arizona I plan to go to graduate school to pursue a career in research and higher education, as teaching is another one of my passions. Outside of the lab I love to go on hikes around Tucson, play improvisational or classical piano, and explore local places to eat.
Ep. 17: Counting The Native Vote
Stephanie Homewytewa is the Tohono O'odham Nation Outreach Coordinator for the Pima County Recorder's Office. In this episode she shared her goals of reaching into the Tohono O'odham community to encourage, educate, and get individuals registered to vote. History shows that Native Americans were given citizenship in 1924 with the signing of the Indian Citizenship Act, but in many cases weren't guaranteed the right to vote in all states until 1964. Voting barriers have existed and still exist in Native communities today, a few examples such as, in most tribal communities there are no physical addresses, and most tribal IDs cannot be used as identification for voting. For the most part the fight to have equal access to the ballot box for Native Americans is still a struggle. During the episode Stephanie touches on calling attention to the concerns of Native issues and how they can get involved in the voting process.

Photo by Mindi Acosta of Fluteloop Photography.[/caption] In this episode we hear from Cassandra Bendickson of LuftBassoons, a Tucson based band of bassoons on a mission to bring the magic of the bassoon everywhere and anywhere. Cassandra describes the variety of genres the quartet enjoys performing, and their grant-funded project aimed at bringing locally-composed music to their stage. She describes new works composed by Jay Vosk, Russell Ronnebaum of Rogue Theater, Samantha Bounkeua of Rogue Violin, Dante Rosano of Two-Door Hatchback, and Marco Rosano of Orkesta Mendoza. Cassandra talks about this particular instrument and what drew her to it. We also have a conversation about impostor syndrome, (feelings of inadequacy that persist--despite success), and how she learned to take on challenges, even when (especially when) they scare her. Cassandra also talks about her artistic trajectory and her advice for emergent musicians today. Upcoming performances include:
