Sarina Shames

Born and raised in Louisiana, I graduated from Northwestern State University of Louisiana with a BA in Journalism in 2005. I have had the honor and pleasure to work in Youth Development for the last 10 years starting at The Harlem Children’s Zone (New York, NY) from 2009 to 2017 and the YMCA (Seattle, WA) from 2017 to 2019. Some of my past experiences include Student Advocate, Academic & Education Coordinator, Program Supervisor and Assistant Program Director. I love to help shape young minds and guide them towards reaching their fullest potential.
