Daniel Roman has a degree in Sociology from Cal and an expertise in the history of Hip Hop. Both of these areas help him in his work administering START, our screening tool for symptoms of trauma. Daniel spends much of his time in the field, interviewing young people growing up in our most violent neighborhoods, educating them about trauma and giving them tools — breathing exercises, relaxation techniques — for coping with the trauma. Before coming to Youth ALIVE!, Daniel taught young people at RYSE Youth Center in Richmond about Hip Hop and helped them make their own recordings.
