Faith Iloka

Director, Trenton Youth Theater

Faith Iloka is a playwright, mental health counselor, and all-around arts enthusiast. She is a proud Trenton Central High School alumna (Class of 2017) and Princeton University alumna (Class of 2021). At Princeton, she majored in African American studies and received certificates in theater and music theater. She also wrote and performed in her senior thesis play Sweet Mother, served as artistic director, president, and company member of DoroBucci Dance Group, modeled in Princeton’s annual fashion shows, and performed in various theatrical productions. Faith's passion for service and advocacy within the intersections of Blackness, arts, and mental health led most of her work on and off campus. She recently graduated with her master's degree in mental health counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, and hopes to continue integrating the arts into her work as a therapist. Faith returns to TYT after serving as one of two inaugural student leaders during her senior year at Princeton.
