Meet Huck House Youth Award Winner, Pasha Rivers-Johnson.
In the past year, Pasha has faced many barriers but overcome them to reach her goals. Before entering TLP, Pasha gave birth to twins and left an abusive relationship with their father. The abuse also resulted in Pasha leaving college saddled with student loans. Despite being a victim of domestic violence, Pasha remains a kind, caring, respectful and dedicated student and mother. In the fall 2017, Pasha began taking classes at Ohio Dominican University and joined the track and field team. She hopes to become a special education teacher. Pasha has earned the admiration of her peers and counselors because she advocates for herself and other victims of abuse.
