Llana and K-9 Buck
My name is Llana Rojas and my battle buddy is Buck. I am 25 years old and he is 14 months old. I am originally from the Philippines and moved to the US in 2010. I run my business full time at Eden Prairie Center. My company is called Let’s Roar and it represents speaking up, standing up, and supporting military sexual assault survivors. I provide non tarnish jewelry and activewear for men and women. I served in the Army National Guard for 6 years as a Culinary NCO and I am now in the Air Guard serving as a Maintenance Management Analyst with the 133rd Airlift Wing. I deployed to Kuwait, Egypt and Saudi Arabia in 2021.
Buck is my helpful companion when I struggle from my PTSD and anxiety disorder from military sexual trauma that occurred when I was deployed. Buck is a very smart, sweet, and playful Australian Shepherd. He has been there for me throughout my lowest times and I could not be more thankful for God allowing me to take care of him.
