As a double major in Sociology and African American Studies, she realized her passion is working to solve social justice issues and her future career would be a civil rights lawyer.

After moving to the Bay Area, Nwamaka began volunteering at the Ella Baker Center because she believed in the mission of the organization and its commitment to peace, justice and opportunity[4].
