Jimeera (she/her) is currently studying for a Behavioral Health & Human Services degree. As a young woman navigating the hurdles of life, the Fellowship will allow her to be part of the conversation to address housing insecurity, bad credit, financial insecurity, etc. Jimeera believes knowledge is power and wants to be in a position where she can holistically gain control of her narrative/life story to pave a smoother path for her children because she believes that they are the future. During and at the end of the Fellowship, she hopes to have access to resources and opportunities that could open up doors for her to succeed.

Jimeera’s goal is to use all of the opportunities presented during the Fellowship to grow and become a good example for her children, showing them that it is always possible to be better, have better, and do better; no matter what obstacles stand in the way.
