Growing up in Miami-Dade County as the daughter of a pastor, Faith learned early that giving back to the community wasn't an option but a responsibility.
Since age 15, she has volunteered with local youth citizen boards and served as a youth director with the Homestead Police Athletic League for three years. Many of her weekends were spent serving at soup kitchens and volunteering at community events and youth summits.
A graduate from the Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Faith realized during her summer internships at the Children's Defense Fund that her true calling was child advocacy and community engagement. While at FAMU, she majored in criminal justice and law and earned state certification as both a life mentor with the Department of Juvenile Justice and an advocate with the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
After graduation, Faith joined City Year Miami as a teacher in middle school. She then moved on to be the program manager for the Help Me Grow parenting-resource program in Miami-Dade. She has represented Miami-Dade and spoke at both state and national conferences. Faith was also involved in working to expand Help Me Grow to all 67 counties in Florida.
In November, Faith joined The Children's Movement as the statewide outreach and engagement coordinator. She also volunteers with the Children of Inmates program, serves on the City Year Miami Alumni Board and has tutored children in the foster care system for the past two years.
Faith's goal in life is to be an advocate for children on the local, state and national levels. She believes in the tranformational power of youth and will continue cultivating generational change in her community and beyond.
