Hello my name is Zamaria McClary. I am 17 years old and attend Freedom Prep Charter High School. I joined the Youth Healing Team because it allows me to have the opportunity to teach others about trauma and how to help someone who has faced a traumatic experience. My experience on the Youth Healing Team has been exciting, especially since speaking to different teachers within my community allows me to give back. When I first joined the Youth Healing Team I was nervous about speaking in front of large groups of people, but as I continued to do more presentations I became more comfortable. I hope to learn more about trauma and ways that I, as a young person, can help others overcome their past experiences.
