About Sabina:

What She's Sharing:

'Healing is Freedom', a video she created as a Capstone Project for her summer internship/fellowship with Summer Search. As Sabina explains:

"I wanted to create this video to show Summer Search staff and students how, through Summer Search, I was able to connect with amazing people and organizations. There are many things that have shaped who I am as a person today and Summer Search, alongside Freedom Community Clinic, have been big positive impacts in my life."

Watch her video below or on YouTube.

Some highlights:

  • Photos and reflections from Sabina's formative summer experience with Deer Hill Expeditions;
  • Sabina's growing connections with her ancestors (including her grandmother, Sabina, who she is named after) and indigenous healing practices; 
  • Her journey to finding the Freedom Community Clinic in Oakland;
  • Special appearance from Julie, also a Summer Search Bay Area 2022 Summer Fellow.

In closing, Sabina shares:

"It is never too late to start the journey of finding yourself and beginning to heal. You have to heal yourself first, in order to help bring healing to others. I believe a good place to start this journey is Freedom Community Clinic and within yourself."

Thank you Sabina for sharing this incredible reflection and journey, and for being part of this wonderful Summer Search community.
