Rickeena Boyd-Kamei has a desire to give her time to others. A teacher for 14 years, she recently moved her teaching into home hospital and transition support teaching, where she works mostly from Rady Children’s Hospital. There, she instructs children who are hospitalized and can’t attend school in a classroom environment.
She also volunteers with numerous community organizations, including the Junior League of San Diego, where she began her current work to end human trafficking. It is through this work that she’s been able to combine her profession as an educator with her passion of working with causes that improve the lives of women and youth.
“Because most of my work is in prevention (of human trafficking), I do not see immediate results, and many of the people that I speak with, I only encounter once,” she says. “But I have had the opportunity to meet and learn from heroes in our community. Survivors and advocates who work tirelessly to serve victims and educate community members.”
