Penina Wallace moved from New Hampshire to Philadelphia not long ago after graduating from law school in 2016. She is an associate at a small firm, practicing criminal defense, with a focus on appeals in state and federal courts. In the past, she has worked with many diverse groups, including New American Africans, a non-profit that helps newly arriving African immigrants and refugees acclimate to life in New Hampshire. She is very excited to continue promoting diversity and understanding with the Interfaith Center. In her free time, Penina enjoys gardening, cooking, rock-climbing, and cycling, doing several fundraising rides each year.
