Dreamers Youth was founded by Asha Holland and Samantha Smith, who were inspired by their own life-changing experiences as kids - experiences that were not available for most young people in their neighborhoods.
In Columbus Ohio, Asha discovered her passion for music at an early age making mixtapes with her mom’s DJ friends, developed her skills at the nearby community center, and began touring the country at the age of 13.
Growing up in South Central Los Angeles, Samantha had the rare opportunity to attend leadership conferences, youth camps and performing arts programs, which provided a safe space for her to be vulnerable, unleash her imagination and dream big.
Their eyes were opened to a world of possibilities that paved each of their unique pathways into adulthood. Asha made her dream of becoming a world-class DJ a reality while Samantha embarked on her own entrepreneurial journey as a healer, building and launching several wellness businesses.
