West Africa Project
In June, 2015, I collaborated with director Ballard C. Boyd (my boyfriend) to provide services to a nonprofit in Liberia called More Than Me and an elementary school in Ghana called Christ Family Academy. I taught Brain Gym and MBL to both students and staff to accelerate learning and healing, while Ballard documented the trip and filmed broadcast-quality mini-documentaries, showcasing the schools' work and the story of their students.
In order to complete this incredible project we raised funds to cover travel expenses and supplies through Indiegogo. Thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters we raised 125% of our fundraising goal!
On January 28th, 2017 I was honored to teach the inaugural class for Building Blocks, a New York Junior League (NYJL) committee that teamed up with the Single Parent Resource Center (SPRC). The Building Blocks committee's vision is to provide interactive play with moms and babies (age 6 months to 4 years) to create a safe and supportive environment for the new moms to bond with their children.
I donated my services and taught a free "mommy and me" interactive movement class for their inaugural event. The class involved a mix of yoga, scarves, brain gym techniques, songs, and games to facilitate movement-based learning and support joyful connection for the families present.
