Jonovia Chase is an advocate and aspiring event planner within New York State. As a young community stake holder and leader within the House Ballroom and Transgender communities Jonovia continues to mobilize youth and Trans folks to raise awareness on health and wellness. More specifically, she aims to creating more voices for her community to unify and break systematic behaviors geared around stigma and the further marginalization of these communities. Humanizing the lives of people of Trans experience is what one of her most deep heart felt values are. She remains hopeful that the work being done by many will continue to affect the change needed in the world.
