Ms. Fredison volunteered at Ujamaa Place from the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship program, which provides a year of professional enrichment in the United States for experienced professionals from designated countries throughout the world. Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and their commitment to public service in either the public or private sector.

Ms. Fredison is a prison social worker in her country of Suriname, near Brazil in South American.  In this episode Mr. Fredison shares her experience working with Ujamaa staff and participants, along with unexpected crisis events, COVID-19 and the murder of George Floyd.  Behavior Health Coach Darnell Baker supervised and trained Ms. Fredison on work with him on the Ujamaa Wellness Team.
