Ayah Alnahwi

Ayah Alnahwi is the Project Associate for The 84, working with the Statewide Leadership Team. She was born in Boston and grew up all over the place, but Boston remains her true home. Ayah earned her BSc in Psychology from Northeastern University and went on to work at the MGH as a Behavioral Health Support Specialist.
Ayah has worked with young people since she was a young person. She is passionate about health equity and supporting young people in seeking purpose, wellness, and joy.
When she’s not at work, you can find Ayah tending to her dozens of plants, working on some traditional cross-stitch, hosting dinner parties and board game brunches, or watching too much Star Trek. You can reach Ayah at aalnahwi@hria.org.

Amanda Irizarry

Amanda Irizarry is the Senior Manager of the 84 Movement within the Training and Capacity Building division at HRiA. As a Philly native, Amanda has dedicated the last 12 years of her personal and professional life to ensuring every young person she meets feels seen, valued and heard while creating spaces that empower youth and marginalized people groups to understand the individual power and collective impact, they have to shape the world around them. With an expertise in positive youth development and public health advocacy skills, Amanda has worked within the tobacco control field as a social innovator and champion of young people for 8 years. Her talent for strategic planning, curriculum design and facilitation has enabled her to transform out-of-touch youth programs into authentic youth empowerment models. Before joining HRiA, Amanda served as the Director of Youth Programs for the Indiana State Department of Health for two and half years where she worked to refresh and establish the infrastructure of their statewide youth empowerment brand and movement, VOICE Indiana. During her time there, she was able to influence culture and revitalize Indiana’s approach to youth engagement and tobacco control as she engaged, educated, and empowered adult allies and youth leaders to address tobacco as a social justice issue. Amanda graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine with her Masters in Public Health Management and Administration and was bestowed the Provost Award for Advocacy, Leadership and Service. You can reach Amanda at airizarry@hria.org.

Carly Caminiti

Carly has been the Project Manager for The 84 since 2013 and has been working on tobacco issues since 2000 when she was in high school. Hailing from Springfield, Illinois, Carly has a strong devotion to all things Midwest, and loves getting back there to check on if the corn is knee-high by the 4th of July (that’s a thing). Her two favorite holidays are the Youth Power Summit and Kick Butts Day, and she loves working with The 84’s Statewide Leadership Team and the staff at the Boston office (and loves to prank them, especially). Carly’s other interests include dinner parties with friends, biking, yoga, speaking Italian, going to church, manifesting positive things, and eating plant-based whole foods. You can reach Carly at ccaminiti@hria.org.

Jenna Carter

Jenna has been on The 84 team since 2015 and is a Program Coordinator for the movement. She graduated with a BA in Communications and a minor in English and Social Sciences. Jenna has lived in MA for most of her life, but was born in VT (she likes to joke that she still has her “granola” roots from her birthplace). She has a passion for social justice, film, music, and family. Jenna’s hobbies include Live Action Roleplay (LARP), gardening, thought-provoking documentaries on Netflix, and taking too many pictures of her cat. Jenna is excited to be on board with the movement and continue to support youth power! You can reach Jenna at jcarter@hria.org.
