Equal Justice Works Fellow
KyMara T. Guidry (KG) is a 2020 Equal Justice Works Fellow at Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice. In her own words, KyMara is a legal storyteller, weaving the real stories and experiences of marginalized communities into her advocacy. In January 2020, she joined Georgia Appleseed as an intern with a focus on the expansion of school-based behavioral health services in Georgia. KyMara’s Equal Justice Works Fellowship focuses on expanding legal advocacy available to Georgia foster youth to keep them in safe schools with appropriate supports that drive their success and empowerment towards boundless possibilities.
Before relocating to Oxford, Mississippi to complete law school, KyMara was a high school English teacher in rural South Louisiana to students who continue to inspire and guide her work today. She calls Houston home where she received a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Texas Southern University.
KyMara lives in South Fulton with her partner and their pug, McLovin. On any given day she can be found with her nose in a book or cooking a yummy meal for her family.
