Eveth Padilla

Eveth moved to Sunnyside when she was 5 years old and graduated from Sunnyside Highschool. She attended Eastern Washington University where she received a B.S. In Community Health, Minor in Communication Studies and a B.A. Certificate in Leadership. She enjoys helping people and learning. She followed one of her many dreams by moving to Uganda where she lived for a few months and educated the communities about HIV, Malaria and Nutrition. During her stay in Uganda she created one of her favorite memories which was integrating with a community, learning about the Bantu tribe located in Southwest Uganda, their culture, and their language. She also had the opportunity to learn their local dance.

She recently moved back to Sunnyside and is excited to work and grow with the community.

Here she is wearing a dress and headband made out of Kitange , which was hand made by a Ugandan seamstress. Kitange is a African fabric that is made up of different prints. This is one of Eveth’s favorite pictures.
