Name: Yi Q. Chen (She/They)
Role in NAAAP: Self Care and Wellness Program Lead
On my resume: Clinical Therapist at Rise and Reclaim Therapy
Beyond my resume: I feel recharged and most present in natural spaces (and around dogs!) I’m also working on healing and reconnecting with parts of my ancestry through gardening
Why I joined NAAAP Baltimore: Friendship and community! I joined because I wanted to co-create safe and connection-building spaces in the community, among the community!
Favorite NAAAP experience so far: I loved volunteering with the Plant Lovers [Community Builders group] at BLISS Meadows and getting to feed the Nigerian Dwarf Goats!!
