The {she crew} Young Professionals' Board (YPB) is a collective of emerging professionals who may not have the budget or experience to serve on a traditional non-profit board, but are eager to volunteer their time, skills and creativity to a worthwhile organization.


SHAJAYA MARTINEZ - Shajaya loves to travel, laugh, eat and read. She is a Chicago native and a Cubs fan. In 2016, she graduated from DePauw University with a B.A. in sociology and gender studies. Shajaya is excited to be part of the YPB because she believes the creation of spaces for self-identified women and girls is vital to our growth, joy and becoming. In society, we are socialized to center men, often resulting in the silencing of non-male voices, desires and selves.

ALEX DAHM  -  Alex is a trans cartoonist, performance artist, and teacher from Minnesota. Currently, they live in Albany Park where they create free alternative theatre with ShowParty. Alex's hobbies include collecting insects, making collaborative zines, and overusing the word "rad." 

SEAN JOHNSON -  Sean is a Chicago native currently living in the Bridgeport neighborhood. He studied Finance and Economics at UIC, and has been working in the field since college. Outside the office, Sean enjoys cycling, hiking, researching random topics, and just generally just trying to make the most of what Chicago summers have to offer.
