Meet Matthew

Meet one of our teammates.  

"I grew up in Sacramento, California and have always had a passion for travel and adventure. I have had the opportunity to travel to many places in the United States as well as parts of Europe, Australia, Asia, and Central America. Music has also played a huge part in my life both as a hobby and vocation. I have sang and played the piano since I was 13.

 My heart for Shema comes from the past eight years being involved with a restorative home for girls rescued from the sex-slave industry here in the United States. My mother has been a part of Courage Worldwide since its beginning and now it really is a family affair. The trauma and horrific exploitation that has been forced upon my sisters is almost unbearable to hear about. I believe Shema is a practical and tangible way to restore many women back to a place of wholeness and dignity.  I am excited to continue to endeavor on this adventure."
