Graduate Reflection: Fantasia Smith Details Her Experience With the Metropolitan Peace Academy

“The MPA has been great for me. It has taught me so much in wanting to have integrity in my life and work.”

Outreach Cohort 15 graduate and Chicago CRED Life Coach Fantasia Smith recently reflected on her time at the Metropolitan Peace Academy and the profound effect it’s had on her life. Her cohort, along with three other graduating cohorts, received their certifications earlier this month and will go on to serve communities all across Chicago. Their mission is to help reduce gun violence across the city and aid people in healing from trauma.

Congratulations to Fantasia and her fellow graduates! Listen to her reflection below.
