Founder of R.I.S.E
Kammeran discovered her love for theatre at the age of ten in Baltimore. After performing as a professional actress for serveral years, Kammeran moved back home to Baltimore and began teaching Performing Arts at a private school for students with special needs.
Students who were non-verbal would sing solos in front of an audience. The arts had a way of defying the odds for these students and in turn, pushed them to their greatest potential across all academic subjects and in their personal life. Kammeran knew that there needed to be an increase in arts education everywhere.
The arts play such an important part in the lives of young people and being able to provide more arts opportunities for these students in the Baltimore City community is what further led Kammeran to create R.I.S.E.
