Te’aira is originally from Birmingham, AL but moved to Washington, D.C. for college and then later to Baltimore, Maryland for work. For almost a decade, she spent time working with individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty in the school systems, combating against disability oppression in Cameroon as a member of Cameroon Deaf Empowerment Organisation, and doing community organizing work in West Baltimore.

She is very much new to the city and is excited to learn more about the people, community, culture of Nashville. In Te’aira’s spare time, she takes pleasure in eating cuisines from various countries (South Korea, Ethiopia, & India) as well as enjoying yoga, playing with her nephews and dogs, & walking with God.
