Keisha's Story

Keisha Johnson believes that helping Baltimore students lead healthier, active lifestyles can improve the city's graduation rate. Lowering the childhood obesity rate can mean students have more self-esteem and spend more time in the classroom and less time sick at home or in the hospital.

Her vision for Baltimore combines Keisha's two passions, sports and helping others. When she graduates, she plans to start a career in sports marketing. She's excited about the opportunities for mentoring and inspiring youth that the sports industry offers.

Keisha's experience in Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape has not only helped her develop her vision, but the steps she needs to take toward achieving her goals. Her peers in the program have become another family with a common purpose to work for a better Baltimore.
