Mentor Coordinator

Tamika Jeanty, born and raised on the sunny shores of Miami, Florida, holds a degree in Interdisciplinary Social Science with a minor in American Sign Language. As a first-generation Haitian, Tamika takes immense pride in her rich and beautiful culture. Beyond her professional pursuits, she is a multifaceted individual with a passion for singing, cooking, painting, attending live concerts, and spending quality time with her loved ones.

A fascinating fun fact about Tamika is that she appeared on NBC’s The Voice in both Seasons 17 and 18. This experience allowed her to showcase her talent and provided invaluable connections and direct access to key figures in the entertainment industry.

Tamika’s journey into the world of coordination began at the University of South Florida, where she served as the Music Coordinator for “USF’s Dance Marathon.” Their primary mission was to raise funds supporting children and their families, organizing an annual event dedicated to fundraising for John Hopkins’ All Children’s Hospital.

In addition to her journey in coordination, a few years ago, she took the initiative to plan her own live concerts in Miami. Tamika discovered the joy of turning a vision into reality, and that passion drove her forward. Fast forward to her move to Los Angeles, CA, where she continued to build her coordinating knowledge; she started her popular Open Mic event, “Living Room Sessions.” This later evolved into coordinating and planning various events across the diverse landscape of Los Angeles.

Expanding on her event coordination pursuits, Tamika has applied her expertise to overseeing projects for her personal business ventures. Additionally, she imparts her knowledge of effective project management tools, assisting others in streamlining their workflows.

Furthermore, Tamika holds a certification in Digital Marketing, equipping her with skills to integrate marketing strategies into her role. She approaches her work with unwavering passion and dedication. It is a true honor for her to join the IHAD-LA team as a Mentor Coordinator, where she aims to positively impact the lives of our Dreamer Scholars.

In the words of Michelle Obama, “Don’t ever make decisions based on fear. Make decisions based on hope and possibility. Make decisions based on what should happen, not what shouldn’t.” This quote resonates deeply with Tamika’s approach to life and her commitment to empowering others through mentorship.
