Sumayah, a Connecticut native, grew up in a close-knit community that taught her the values of community leadership, volunteering, and the art of assisting. She is currently enrolled at Baltimore City Community College pursuing a degree in Nursing.
One of Sumayah’s true passions is assisting women during childbirth. While in high school, she volunteered in a labor and delivery unit and learned skills from seasoned nurse-midwives. She participated in a doula training program and has assisted in several live births. When not at school or work, she likes to volunteer her birth doula services and mentor the youth.
