Meet Sherlyna Hanna, IGNITE's Baltimore Fellow

Sherlyna Hanna serves as our Baltimore Fellow. She graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work and Sociology, as well as a master’s degree in Social Work from Howard University. Through her work as a social worker, she recognized that the problems her clients dealt with – poverty, recidivism, homelessness, addiction, etc. – were prevalent in the community, and formed a passion for advocating on a macro level. Sherlyna is also a Board Member for the Maryland State Advisory Board for Juvenile Services, where she consults and advises the Secretary of Juvenile Services regarding policies and programs to improve juvenile services across the state. She is passionate about engaging with the Baltimore community and hopes to ignite political passion among women in the community. For Baltimore inquiries, contact Sherlyna at
