Q is a clinical services intern for the housing program. They provide case management to our Spanish-speaking clients, as well as support to the rest of the housing team.
Raised in Fort Worth, TX, Q moved to the DC area to study Social Work at The Catholic University of America. They first worked at SMYAL as a youth fellow in 2019, and have returned to SMYAL in a clinical services capacity. They are passionate about trauma-informed care, intersectionality, and services that reflect the needs and desires of our youth. Q will be attending Smith College for a Master’s in Social Work this summer.
Though Q’s free time is limited, they love crafting, writing to their pen pals, and watching their favorite cartoons.
