Organization: The Birmingham Education FoundationAs the outreach coordinator of International Society and the president of Spanish Honor Society in her high school, Sierra found her niche in helping others understand diverse cultures. Additionally, after helping establish a home in Chennai, India for girls who were at-risk of being trafficked, she knew that she deeply wanted to serve now and in the future. On Samford’s campus, Sierra has been able to teach her peers about diversity through the Multicultural Affairs Committee, an ad-hoc SGA committee designed to increase peer-to-peer education about cultural competency. She has also served at local Birmingham tax sites in low income neighborhoods through ImpactAlabama. Next year, Sierra is excited to compete on the Ethics Bowl Team, work as a tutor in the Communications Resource Center, and serve as a member of the Samford Recruitment Team. Throughout her time in Micah Fellows, Sierra looks forward to serving the local Birmingham area more and learning about justice, mercy, and humility.
