Meet Kemoya!

I’m Kemoya — another TAP Teen at Planned Parenthood of Nassau County. I love being a Teen Advocate because being a relatable source to my peers is a great feeling and I get to educate them on health resources and safe sexual health. 🙏

Fun Fact: I am afraid of heights (😶) but I love rollercoasters. ☝️🎢 

Can't wait to meet you in person at our next Teen Clinic! Come stop by for services and fun.
