Naafua Akuma

I grew up in the Bronx and went to school in the Bronx too. I love working here because of my great love for little children.

Genesis Reyes

My name is Genesis Reyes. Born in Manhattan raised in the Bronx. I am the enrollment specialist for Southern 2. Prior to obtaining my BA in Psychology/minor Early Childhood intervention I started off as an assistant teacher in BSA. After only a few months, I was promoted to lead teacher within the same program. After a year of teaching, I was then promoted as Manager lead teacher. After mentoring teachers for some time I realized my passion is helping others achieve their goals. As an enrollment specialist I am able to help families with their goals to help better our children. I love working with children because its fun! I love that no single day is the same. They motivate me to be a better person and last helping children and their families is the most rewarding job I can ask for!
