101: Finding A Passion for the Youth
Happy Black History Month!
For the next few weeks, we’ll be celebrating and sharing the stories of those who are #blackfirstgen. So, we’re kicking things off with a chat with someone whose parents, in her word, were “Black Revolutionaries.”
Not just that.. If you think you have a big family, today’s guest, Senemeht Olatunji, was one of 12 siblings. Growing up in New York City, her parents started an African centered private school which she attended from K-12. We discuss the transition of her moving to Washington, D.C. and then back to New York City. She found a passion for helping kids in child welfare where she didn’t expect, and now helps kids transition out of foster care. We also discuss both external and internal growth, and how important it is to self care, making sure that mind, body, and spirit are in a good place.
