2013-2015 Poster Child

Dameneka AfrikaDameneka Afrika was selected as the 2013– 2015 poster child for the Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County & Treasure Coast, Inc. because she's intelligent, dependable, far from being shy, and an excellent speaker. Demeneka is a 15 year who enjoys reading, playing the violin, and listening to music.

She believes all children, teens, and adults who inherit the Sickle Cell Trait or Disease are capable of living their lives to the fullest. Dameneka doesn't let a life threatening disease stop her from doing what she loves the most; playing the violin. Dameneka has been playing the violin since she was four years old and hasn't let that disease stop her from doing so. Although living with this disease is very challenging, Dameneka feels as if she can inspire others and that's what makes her stronger everyday. She wants to spread the awareness to those who think that this disease is not serious.

Jazmine is a 15 year old who is motivated when it comes to her education and the Sickle Cell Disease and/or Trait. This disease inspires her to become a Pediatric Hematologist Oncologist. Jazmine wants to be an advocate for those who have been diagnosed with this disease, educate those who don't know anything about it, and let those who are carrying this trait or disease be well aware of it. Jazmine wants to make sure that she's academically prepared for what the future has in store for her. She wants to be sure that her peers and teachers know that she is passionate about her future and future career. Jazmine's determined and eager to educate those who don't understand this disease or trait.
