Born and raised in New Orleans, Kourtney Youngblood's family has lived in the city for many generations. In 2005, she was separated from her home by Hurricane Katrina. After returning, Kourtney quickly realized how rapid the city had changed and the double standards many of the residents have experienced. Ms. Youngblood has a background in Civil Engineering, Social Work, Care and Development of Young Children, worked as a waitress, after-school art-teacher for Bricolage Academy, and worked in partnership with The Mckenna Museums and Helis Foundation to fundraise and connect middle and high-school students in education about history and politics in New Orleans. She helps her family run a small cleaning business and dreams of buying a home in the very neighborhood she spent her formative years. 


Kourtney Youngblood's parents are John Howard and Samantha Youngblood from the Desire Project and the 7th ward.  She is one of six siblings and has a 4-year-old black lab. 


Ms. Youngblood is committed to serving the people of New Orleans and enriching education and community services for a greater future, in which the people of New Orleans receive the respect and quality of life that they are due.
