Shange Jaara Lilaa fell in love with the art of creating at a young age and was motivated to serve those in need. She attended the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Sociology.
Shortly after, Shange became a Lead Teacher serving students with physical, emotional, behavioral, and learning disabilities. She acquired her Community Health Worker Certification from Prince George's Community College and became a Community Health Work Adjunct Professor shortly after. She has committed herself to using her creativity and natural ability to spiritually and physically serve as a liaison to help her community achieve wholistic health, improve its quality of life, and address public health needs.
Shange believes creativity, spirituality, and connectivity, CAN encourage wellness, create a sense of purpose, and HEAL. She is determined to produce universal safe spaces that 'bridge the gap' to ensure her "soul tribe" is spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally, and creatively invigorated and motivated to strengthen community capacity.
