I’m 28 years old and I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Through my travels and experience in different cities, I’ve grounded myself here in Tucson for two years with my three-year-old daughter. I also care for two nieces. I am most proud of being the mom of such an amazing little girl. I have a certificate of completion from The Mama Project and participated in a health equity redesign with Pima County Health Department’s HER2 Project as a volunteer. I also am on the way to completing my associates degree in business management and a certification in behavioral health in 2019, where I’ll combine my knowledge to create a safe haven for youth. I am particularly interested in working as a case manager with LGBT youth.
