Naomi spent her early years in education teaching high school students how to read, write, hustle, and heal themselves. Now as the Program Manager for Vocal Justice, she architects curriculum for young people rooted in self-exploration, social justice, and storytelling, while also creating revolutionary spaces for educators to commune, explore, and deepen their practice. Naomi is also the creator of 4ColouredGurlz, a wellness business that is an ode to Black folks and a declaration that comfort and joy is a colored girl's birthright.
