Khaleah grew up as a dependent of the United States Air Force, which provided her the opportunity to live in various places around the world (including Okinawa, Japan, where she spent most of her childhood). In 2013, she received her BS in Public Health from the University of Maryland College Park (UMD). Her time at UMD served as a pivotal moment for her, for it was during her freshman year that she lost a close family member to AIDS. The loss of this family member inspired her desire to join the fight against HIV/AIDS. While at UMD, Khaleah served as a Sexual Health Educator educating college students and teens throughout Prince George’s County about the importance of engaging in safe sexual health practices. Currently, Khaleah is finishing her MPH at The George Washington University. After graduation this coming Fall, she hopes to continue her Public Health efforts by remaining in HIV education and prevention among adolescents and young adults.
