Please join us in welcoming Sia to the team! Sia will be taking over our school programming when Troy begins grad school, and we couldn't be more excited to have such a talented and committed person join our team! 

From Sia: "I am a Samoan American who is the eldest child of three brothers. My grandparents migrated from American Samoa to create a life for their families that would allow for more opportunities. Growing up, I realized that with supportive people, opportunities and knowledge, a fulfilling life was easier to achieve. Though, seeing and experiencing suffering caused by racial injustice, I became driven to work for social justice with truth and grace. I received a BA from the University of Washington with a degree in Ethnic, Gender, and Labor Studies, and have enjoyed working within the King County community organizing events to promote higher education for high school students. I am grateful to be on the journey working for restorative justice as part of the CHOOSE 180 family."
