A graduate of the Maya Angelou Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., Samantha has a relevant approach to supporting at-risk youth and their families, in addition to service providers and volunteers. Her unique lens is driven by her own youth experience focusing on the positive outcomes of good decision making skills and alternative thinking strategies to escape the arena of poor choices.
With intimate knowledge of the juvenile justice system her expertise as a Behavior Management Specialist at the Maya Angelou Academy at New Beginnings Youth Development Center – the District of Columbia’s educational facility for incarcerated youth – Samantha is an active speaker, trainer, and advocate for justice, education, and diversity initiatives on the local, state and national level. Through advocacy, she transforms lives and learning communities into an area of possibilities where all young people have the opportunity to succeed.
